A few days ago I have finished one of the most amazing books I have read in a while… The Fault in Our Stars” by John Green. 698 more words
As I mentioned to the Blog's Author, I think it's feasible to consider Piper running a defense that looks like this. 1. God's glory is actually infinite. (1) 2. The addition of any number of finite objects to an actually infinite set does not increase the value of said set. 3. No matter how many finite beings you add to the enjoyment of God's glory, God's glory does not increase at all since it is actually infinite. Since Piper's claim seems to be that God does everything so that he will enjoy His own Glory. But as we can see, there is no increase in glory by the addition of finite creatures (since it is all about God's enjoyment and not about the enjoyment of other creatures.) and so God's will is not determined by this aspect of his character. (1) This is a qualitative, and not quantitative statement. Quantitative actual infinities are metaphysically as well as physically impossible.
