After doing my post series on the Anatomy of a Perfect God, I wanted to finish it off with one final question: Does the concept of God even make sense? Is the idea of a Perfect God illogical?
- The Philosophy & Ontology of God’s perfection
- A Perfect Creator, Can a perfect God be the creator of an imperfect world?
- God’s Perfect Word. Is the Bible God’s Perfect word?
- God’s Perfect Covenant. Why a second Covenant if the previous was Perfect?
- God’s Perfect Divine Plan
- Does God measure up to his own Biblical Standard of Perfect?
When I break down this conceptual framework of a perfect God, I can only reasonably conclude that whole concept a perfect Judeo-Christian God is completely and utterly illogical. After doing a study like this, there is nothing about the character God for me to think that God was perfect. In addition what I found is that the doctrine of God’s Perfection is a high maintenance philosophy so much so that respected scholarly christian’s such as even Richard Swinborne, J.P. Moreland, Keith Ward have changed the theological definition of calling ‘God Perfect‘ to mean something less of its dictionary definition.
Yet, the disconnect is the metaphysical reality between an all perfect being; the byproduct of his creation; and the attributes of God’s ontological character. For even the more liberal and moderate definitions don’t hold up to the countless erroneous mishaps in the bible by God. Therefore; Why should I believe that this perfect being (God) exist? What evidence would I have in supporting not just his existence, but also his ambiguous perfections?
