I worked like a dervish this past week to get the book with Deanna Favre out the door–now I hope everyone likes it. She’s a wonderful lady and I enjoyed working with her.
I spent Friday trying to enlarge my Windows drive on Mac Parallels–finally figured it out–and then I had to complete my paper for my doctoral class on Systematic Theology, Part One. Here’s a little sample of it:
Objection Fifteen: Act/Potency or Necessary/Contingent models are arbitrary. Response: These models are not arbitrary; they are logical and final. The universe is composed of a Necessary Being alone, or a Necessary being and contingent beings, because contingent beings cannot create themselves, yet they can cease to exist—or not exist. There are no other alternatives.
Objection Sixteen: The cosmological argument commits modal fallacies. Response: If a contingent being exists, then a Necessary Being must exist—if any being with the potential not to exist exists, then a Being with no potentiality to exist must exist. God is a necessary being because He cannot not be necessary. All finite things need a cause for their existence.
Are you dizzy yet? I am. 🙂
Anyway, I’m glad it’s Saturday and I can putz around the house for a change. BTW, two of my favorite pals are now blogging–Athol Dickson and Randy Alcorn. I really appreciate both of these men, and you’ll find links to their blogs on the right!
Have a lovely weekend!
