The Father: The Almighty

  1. Only the attribute of omnipotence is named in the Creed, and only faith can discern it. [Gen 1:1; Jn 1:3; Mt 6:9; 2 Cor 12:9; I Cor 1:18] God’s will is done. [Ps 115:3]
  2. Scripture confesses the universal power of God. [Gen 49:24; Is 1:24+; Ps 24:8-10; Ps 135:6; Jer 27:5; Jer 32:17; Lk 1:37; Wis 11:21,23; Esth 4:17b; Prov 21:1; Tob 13:2]
  3. God’s fatherly power is revealed in his generous provision, filial adoption, and infinite mercy. [¶239, 2 Cor 6:18; Mt 6:32]
  4. His power is not arbitrary, but is the same as his essence, will, intellect, wisdom, and justice.
  5. God has conquered evil through the voluntary humiliation and resurrection of his Son. [1 Cor 1:24-25; Eph 1:19-22]
  6. Again, only faith can embrace the mystery of God’s power. [¶268; 2 Cor 12:9; Phil 4:13] Mary is the supreme model of this faith. [Lk 1:37,49]
  7. Belief in God’s omnipotence makes nothing that follows in the Creed unbelievable.
