We recently spent several days exclusively studying theology, and had a grand time doing so. Over the course of that time, I was introduced a word that I’d never heard before, which rarely happens to me. To be sure, I was intimately familiar with the concept, I’d just never heard the word before. So, today’s Word Nerd Wednesday installment is the word aseity.
Aseity: the quality or state of being self-derived or self-originated specifically : the absolute self-sufficiency, independence, and autonomy of God.
I don’t really have much more to offer about this word. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, but I do think that aseity is a really cool word.
