My guess would be no, but that it would be more of a logical limitation.
Let's look at a couple of things god did.

Do you see genocide and infanticide as evil or can it be good?

Re: Can good God do evil?

How do you define the word 'evil' here? As to Gnostic Christianity, it is a religion based on free thinking and perpetually seeking god so as to not become idol worshipers like Christians and Muslims are. Think of us as close to Buddhists who put man above god, given that we have created all the go...

Re: Can good God do evil?

I think you missed, or misunderstood, my question here completely. I am asking you what is YOUR definition for 'christian', but you have just more or less repeated what you have said previously. If the above is what you believe, then so be it. But it in NO way answers my clarifying question posed t...

If yes, the problem is that you want to express your BELIEFS only.
Why would I want to express the beliefs of others?

Do you speak for others or for yourself?

This kind of inane reply is why I end in ignoring most of your comments that do not deserve to be put.

Re: Can good God do evil?

[ Do you have any examples of the 'evil' things that you do? These days, I only do good as I am out of the survival game. That is one pretty HUGE claim to make. To only ever do good, some might suggest infers that you are somewhat God-like. Also, to say that one is "out of the survival game", then ...

Then again, they call evil good and good evil. As a Gnostic Christian, I believe the intelligentsia who say tha...

Re: Can good God do evil?

We do what we WANT and CHOOSE to do. You choose to lose at competitions so as to not create hardship for others. Not likely. I don't think you get what it means for you to evolve and why you have to do evil. As the Christians sing, Adam's sin, and ours, is a happy fault and necessary to god's plan....

Re: Can good God do evil?

That's how the general thinking goes. However, you (chose? forgot?) to answer the final question. Given the choice of either algorithm, would you buy a car that doesn't put your safety first? ;) Yes. Always. I would outlaw the opposite computer. That is the natural choice for any human male. If he ...

Re: Can good God do evil?

There can be yin with yang and still NO need to do some thing. You do NOT have to do evil but you choose to, and 'you' can still exist. We do have to do what some will see as evil to survive. If you want to make a statement, claim it to be true like you have done here, and want it accepted and unde...

Re: Can good God do evil?

By the way 'God' is not a "he". What an incredible statement. You know this as a fact, how? Regards DL Because I KNOW what 'God' IS. Know indicates certainty. How are you be certain that a supernatural God even exists? What is your proof of concept? Have you not heard that all the gods are just man...

Of course.

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

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.

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.
