Abstract

Many theologians believe in the doctrine of divine impassibility: that God does not experience pain or pleasure from the actions of creation. However, the question inevitably touches upon our personal relationship and journey with God, a journey involving deep joys and pains. This discussion of divine impassibility relates to the medical profession, which seeks to heal the sick and comfort the dying.
