This article considers whether or not God feels our pain. The doctrine it upholds is the impassibility of God, and shows why this is good news: God saves out of love and grace, and the cross changes everything.
Clarifying the meanings of passibility and impassibility, this article discusses the challenge of understanding the emotions of God. The author considers passibility to be heresy, since it denies the being of the true God by reducing Him to human standards. Confessing impassibility is not denying the emotions of God.
