I've seen you assert here more than once that the Christian view is that "God is not a moral agent."
How does a Christian reconcile this with the supposed sacrifice of Jesus? Does not Jesus as described in the Bible perform moral acts? Is Jesus not the Christian god?
A couple of Old Testament examples of YHVH apparently acting as a moral agent; the global flood, and the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. When your god acts directly (no intermediaries whatever) in this world to pursue an agenda, how is it possible to avoid describing him as a moral agent?
I wouldn't go so far as to say that it is the
Christian view, but I think it is the correct one. By a moral agent, I mean a being who is able to choose between good and evil, but is under a moral obligation to choose good. In other words, a moral agent is a morally responsible being, whose actions are held to account by a standard of morality (Goodness). In my view (and it can be shown clearly, I believe, the Biblical view) is that God is not a moral agent by this definition. Rather, God's nature is
Goodness: He is the standard of morality. He is not able choose evil, only good. He is under no obligation to choose good, and His actions are not held to account by anything or anyone. He is not morally responsible for anything or to anyone. Now, this does not mean that He doesn't perform acts which are morally good. On the contrary, all of the acts He performs are morally good.
