How to have faith in temporal and difficult to define criteria. The problem of the criterion (Chisholm’s title) is present.
I have thought that perhaps one purpose of God might be in utilizing art within engineering actualizations–if a lighter, spacier use of quanta is desired with universal forces interacting locally and non-locally then He has created kind of a masterpiece–yet one would like to view other galaxies and Universes obviously in order to better appreciate the Divine constructions. I will repost a piece on God as good–and compare a little of our fallen human nature to the criterion.
God is perfect–he is not ‘one of the guys’. He is approachable soley through the Son or otherwise as he discloses purposeful interaction. His essence is impeccably holy while human beings are temporal and fallen such that they write onerous chat-room like posts attacking good.
