But i'm guessing that not everyone who listens or watches. This might be familiar. And that is the idea that in one respect god is unchanging and another respect. God changes in one respect. God is unaffected and another respect. God is affected and the way this is usually talked about. In academic theology is di polar theism. It's not a word. I particularly like myself. But it's a way to talk about how god has experiences that are changing but in nature or an essence that is unchanging so to go back to my reference to the greek gods who you know were personal beings but had all these moral failings and so people say well we don't want wanna god with moral failings this view that god's nature is unchanging eternal fixed immutable etc that allows god to be loving at all times and all places and god will never not love anyone because that's god's nature but because god experiences time moment by moment god is in experiencing being god engages in giving and receiving and therefore changes inexperienced moment by moment of that i think is one of the most important and profound ideas that the twentieth century has provided a theology.
