Augustine and His Confessions

Anyone who has read Augustine's Confessions will know his views on God. One view that I have been thinking about is how God is unchanging. One thing God must not have, to fit this description (according to Augustine), is emotions. This is something that many Christians and Catholics would agree with. However, there is a problem because in the Bible there is evidence of God having emotions. Take the First of the Ten Commandments:



“You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any… Continue

William Lane Craig

Tonight I attended a talk by Dr. Craig. I think some commentary on his talk is warranted as he presented himself somewhat differently than in other talks and debates I have seen on the internet. The organizers of the talk were a collection of religious groups, specifically Christian groups and I think this factored into the way he presented himself.

A Critique of William Lane Craig's Version of Objective Morality

 

This morning I read a blog entry written by William Lane Craig and shuddered. [http://www.reasonablefaith.org/site/News2?page=NewsArticle&id=5767 ]

 

According to Craig, his god is not required to follow "objective" moral laws.  At the same time this god is defined as perfectly good.  If it is perfectly good not to follow objective moral laws then there is no reason why humans…
