Natural Theology in Context: Rejoinder to Moser

by Tedla G. Woldeyohannes

By using “God” as a title for a morally perfect God worthy of worship, Paul K. Moser, argues that arguments of natural theology fail to provide adequate evidence for such a God. He contends that based on a best available evidence the Christian God is a true God, a morally perfect God worthy of worship. He claims that evidence from natural theology is inadequate for the Christian God.

In this rejoinder, I contend that since it is not the purpose of arguments of natural theology to provide evidence for the Christian God as a morally perfect God worthy of worship, to reject theistic arguments for their alleged failure to show the existence of a morally perfect God worthy of worship is mistaken. I argue that distinguishing relevant evidence for the Christian God as a Creator from a relevant evidence for God as a Redeemer who is morally perfect and worthy of worship escapes Moser’s objections against the inadequacy of arguments of natural theology.
