Is There a God?

argument that if an omnibenevolent and omnipotent God were to exist, he would not condone the apparent suffering and evil that takes place. This argument was first proposed by the Greek philosopher Epicurus who devised: “Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?” One explanation for this is that the evil...

The Goodness Of God

goodness is defined: Is an action good because: 1) God commands it, or 2) God commands what is good? The choice to be made is double-edged. If you choose (1) God’s commands make things good, it would mean that if God commanded that ‘rape is not wrong’, then there would be nothing morally wrong with rape. Some philosophers do not like this view as it could mean that God is a divine dictator because whatever God commands is the law. Option (2) suggests that God only commands what is good.
