The Doctrine of Divine Simplicity (DDS) is the Christian dogma which teaches that God is “simple,” which is to say, that He is not composed of parts, but “is One” (Dt. 6:4) and uncompounded.
Since the beginning of the revelation of God to man, this doctrine has been held as part of necessary belief, being taught to us by, both, the Prophets and the Apostles. And, just as with all essential parts (no pun intended) of our faith, these same things have been passed down through the apostolic lines, unto the Church Fathers, and until today. So, let’s take a look at what they said, about DDS.
