9. Transcendent Transcendence means, God is far above, beyond and outside the created order. He’s greater than the creation and is independent of it. The Almighty is beyond our reach and exalted in power; in his justice and great righteousness, he does not oppress (Job 37:23). God “ who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see ” (1 Tim 6:16)

Some who arguably Over-Emphasize God’s Transcendence Islam Immanuel Kant (d. 1804), Enlightenment philosopher Deism (seventeenth and eighteenth centuries) Held God made the world but then mostly abandoned it.

10. Sovereign God rules over creation, is the Lord or King of creation, not subject to anyone or anything else The Lord reigns (Ps. 99:1; 146:10; etc.) I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.’ (Isaiah 46:10) The Lord does whatever pleases him (Ps. 135:6) All the peoples of the earth are regarded as nothing. He does as he pleases with the powers of heaven and the peoples of the earth. No one can hold back his hand or say to him: “What have you done?” (Daniel 4:35) In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will (Eph 1:11)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
