Answer

Theology sometimes talks about God as "simple." And when you hear that not from a technical background, you think, "Oh no, God's very complicated." There is so much going on there, he's so big and all of that, but, to talk about God as simple is to talk about him as not being divisible. You can't separate him out into this part, this part, or this part. God is absolutely wholly, completely integrated so that you can't. You know, I have arms and legs and I would still be me if I were to lose a finger or something like that. God's just not like that. He cannot be divided.
