From a Catholic site:

"When we say that God is infinite, we mean that He is unlimited in every kind of perfection or that every *conceivable perfection belongs to Him in the highest *conceivable way."

*I presume this means 'conceivable by God' as infinity is, by definition, unable to be fully pictured by us.

This seems to imply that every single good thing (literally every good thing) is an aspect of God and is one of His many infinite attributes that has (again, literally) unending quality.

Do all Christians agree with this idea?

So all acknowledge God is all infinite good? That every kind of perfection exists as part of His being, to a never ending degree of quality? –  Sehnsucht Feb 2 '14 at 18:50

1 Answer 1

In short, no. Concepts such as infiniteness, omnipotence, ect do have slight variations among Christian theologians.

Alternative interpretation of the infiniteness of God:

Infinity is a pattern which is able to repeated endlessly. God contains characteristics and qualities- patterns- which will be repeated without end, such as His existence, goodness, and so on.
