Controversy has erupted in the comments to the post “Oncertainty” over whether the God described by classical philosophy is the same as the God of the Bible. Commenter Ilion maintains that they are different because, for example, the God of classical philosophical theism is impassible (i.e., not affected by anything in the created realm), whereas the God of the Bible loves his children and sent Christ to atone for their sins. Others have seconded Ilion. And Proph and Kristor have responded by defending classical philosophical theology
I just want to add one crucial point. The philosophers probably have good reason for their counterintuitive claims about God; for example, that He is simple (not composed of parts) and unchanging. But the Bible is the supreme authority on the nature of God. And if the Bible says that God loves His children and hates sin, then God does hate sin and love His children, and any valid philosophical system will need to acknowledge this.
I don’t know exactly how divine impassibility can be reconciled with God loving and hating, or how divine simplicity can be reconciled with the Trinity of the Godhead. I presume Christian philosophy knows how to do this. But one thing I do know: the Bible tells the truth about God, and any philosophy that does not agree with biblical teaching is mistaken and in need of correction.
