Episode 53– Show Notes
We start with an argument from our series on 50 Arguments for God’s Existence. This time
“The Argument from Degrees of Perfection” by Catholic philosopher Peter Freeft. The following link gives a summary.

We try our best to do the argument justice while discussing how it doesn’t work for us.
Somehow we drifted into mentioning the recent debate “Theism vs Atheism” between Jonathan McLatchie and Alex O’Connor. Here’s the link:

This idea of God’s Perfection led us on to this pair of questions:
1) Would a perfect God create a perfect world?
2) Is this world perfect?

It opened up what the Bible says on God being perfect, which is not just Jesus’s words in Matthew 5v48 “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” The Old Testament Yahweh doesn’t come across as perfect. We enjoyed the anger management in Exodus 33v3
The classic Christian response to why our world isn’t perfect while God is perfect is the Fall and Adam and Eve. We go back there again (sorry).
