TBT@ITT: John Frame on the Aseity of God




From 
The Doctrine of God by John Frame:

Support for the general aseity (independence, self-existence, self-sufficiency, self-containment) of God:
  1. God owns all things - Gen. 14:19, 22; Ps. 24:1; Ps. 50:10-12
  2. Everything possessed by creatures comes from God - Ex. 20:11; Neh. 9:6; Ps. 146:5-6
  3. When we give something back to God, we give him only what he has first given us - Luke 12:42, 16:1-8; Titus 1:7
  4. When we give something back to God, he is not obligated to recompense us- Luke 17:10
  5. Therefore God owes nothing to any creature - Job 41:11; Rom. 11:35-36
  6. Therefore God has no needs - Ps. 50:8-15; Is. 40:19-20, 44:15-17
