Incorporeality of God
Is his being without a body. That God is incorporeal is evident; for,
1. Materiality is incompatible with self-existence, and God being self-existent, must be incorporeal.
2. If God were corporeal, he could not be present in any part of the world where body is; yet his presence is necessary for the support and, motion of body.
3. A body cannot be in two places at the same time; yet he is every where, and fills heaven and earth.
4. A body is to be seen and felt, but God is invisible and impalpable, John 1:18 . Charnock's works, vol. 1: p. 117; Doddridge's Lect. lec. 47; Gill's Body of Div. vol. 1: p. 45. oct.
