Finite godism?
« on: July 18, 2017, 06:13:44 PM »
I appreciate WLCs answer in the question of the week about God's superlative attributes....


Your theological bent emerges in your final paragraph: you prefer some sort of limited deity, such as is featured in open theism, over the omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent God of traditional theism. But I don’t find any of the arguments for such limitations convincing (see my book The Only Wise God). The biblical motifs you mention have plausibly to do with the pervasive anthropomorphism of scriptural discourse about God, lest you wind up with the humanoid deity featured, for example, in Mormonism

I agree that Mormonism teaches finite godism/polytheism, but disagree that Open Theism teaches a limited Deity (should not be confused with finite godism).
