Philosophers Index Abstract

  1. In part 1 of the article the author explicates certain analogies "implicit in much talk about God": that God's authority is like that of a father, and that the goodness of God is like the goodness of man.
  2. In the second part he shows in what way he believes there is "an inherent contradiction in the notion of God's perfect nature."
  3. He concludes that the alleged union of the divine and human in the person of Christ is a logical impossibility.
