Theologians broadly agree on the supreme perfections that are ascribable to God. Power, wisdom, knowledge, bliss, and compassion are ascribed to God in both Indian and Semitic traditions. Nevertheless, there have been many different ways of spelling out what such perfections imply, and how they relate to the universe. A common theme has been the desire to exclude from God any hint of imperfection or limitation. This has led to a concept of God which is strongly distinguished from time, finitude, suffering, ignorance, and passibility.

Keywords:   Trinity, Semitic tradition, Indian tradition, creation, divine being, supreme power
