Theological Term of the Week: Veracity

theological-term-of-the-week

This week’s term: Veracity (Communicable) – The quality of being truthful. As an attribute of God, it is to be seen as absolute, which can be said of no human being. God cannot speak inaccurately in any sense, either from lack of knowledge, fear of reprisal, protection from exposure, or any of the other reasons men lie. It is not a moral responsibility God exercises, but an involuntary attribute of His character. 

Last week’s term: Holiness (Communicable) – The quality or state of being holy. As an attribute of God, it means to be absolutely flawless in all characteristics and activities. In this sense it is not to be seen as excellence in God’s conduct, by which He perfectly follows holy principles, but the basic personal attribute of God, from which all other attributes flow, and by which the principles of holiness become principles.
