I agree with all you stated. My problem is the tension between goodness and freedom. Do you agree that there is tension?

Of course.

Goodness can be gaged and freedom is something impossible for humans. We are tribal.

Re: Can good God do evil?

Good one. The good/safety of the many, outweighs the good/safety of the few. This might be the only moral tenet to be objective in an otherwise subjective list. Governments and industry control robotic programming and experts are saying that the first law for robots is to not do anything to harm hu...

Re: Can good God do evil?

Pick any moral issue and I will walk you through it if you cannot land on it being good or evil. But since you are offering - I'll take you up on the challenge. We live in the world of autonomous/self-driving vehicles. We are already in a place where these vehicles can predict impact/accident as ha...

Re: Can good God do evil?

How can you say you have no way of knowing good from evil? In general terms, do you not know what you like? Do you not know what you dislike? I edited my comment to make that exact point. Without innate morality it's impossible to tell good from evil. Hmm. Language is a bitch. We have an innate sur...

Re: Can good God do evil?

If the Devil does not exist, we would not know God. If Evil did not exist, we would not know good, just neutrality. It doesn't solve anything. Even if we accept that both the Devil and God exist, we have no way of knowing who's the 'good' guy who's the 'evil' guy? What if Satan is the good guy and ...

Re: Can good God do evil?

If the Devil does not exist, we would not know God. If Evil did not exist, we would not know good, just neutrality. From utilitarian ethical theory, absolute good is evil because it prevents good. If I assume God is real, he is evil because he is good because you cannot be good without being evil. ...

Re: Can good God do evil?

Erm... if god is good, he won't do evil...in this case he is not omnipotent. His actions are curtailed by a whole set of activities. If god is omnipotent, he will do both good and evil. Indeed. Yin without Yang is a foolish notion. Regards DL There can be yin with yang and still NO need to do some ...

Re: Can good God do evil?

Scriptures are NOT clear, Why do people who BELIEVE or DISBELIEVE God use the bible as though EVERY word in it is written directly from God, Itself, and then EVERY word means exactly whatever the person reading thinks or believes it means? The scriptures I spoke of are quite clear. Better than 70 %...

By the way 'God' is not a "he".
What an incredible statement.

You know this as a fact, how?

Re: Can good God do evil?

[ ALL people are FREE to choose what they like and do not like, which they obviously do. Scriptures are clear that we do not have a free will as god hardens the hearts of non-believers so that they do not believe and gives the grace to believe to those he wants to believe. If you read your bible yo...

Re: Can good God do evil?

Does good God have the ability to do evil? If yes, is His evil act justifiable just because He is God? I am late but--- God is said to be able to do anything and that would include doing evil. To say no would be to restrict what an Omni-everything god can do. That is not really allowed. History, if...

Re: Can good God do evil?

Do you agree with the definition of God is goodness? What does goodness mean this context? No, I do not define god as goodness. We live in a dualistic reality where we have both a good and evil side, a Yin and Yang side. If we have the complimentary traits of good and evil, --- and we are created i...

God which I am aiming is the Catholic God... If such is the case, then shouldn’t the title of your thread be: Can the Catholic God do evil?
