The following excerpt was sent to us by one of our CVA sustaining
God, considering Himself, is as infinitely separate from all
possibility of doing hurt, or willing pain to any creature, as He is
from suffering pain or hurt from the hand of man...
This is because He is in Himself, in His Holy Trinity, nothing else but
the boundless Abyss of all that is good, and sweet, and amiable; and
therefore stands in the utmost contrariety to every thing that is not a
blessing, in an eternal impossibility of willing and intending a
moment's pain or hurt to any creature...
For, from this unbounded source of goodness and perfection, nothing
but infinite streams of blessing are perpetually flowing forth upon all
nature and creature, in more incessant plenty than rays of light stream
from the sun...
And as the sun has but one nature and can give forth nothing but the
blessings of light, so the Holy Triune God has but one nature and intent
towards all the creation, which is, to pour forth the riches and
sweetness of his divine perfections upon every thing that is capable of
them and according to its capacity to receive them.
