Example text

Hartshorne says, [God] is not 'omnipotent' in the Thomistic sense [of having] the power effectively to choose that any possible world, no matter which, shall be actual. (CS 242). God does not, and logically could not, unilaterally decide which world will be actual; which world is actual is partly determined by beings other than God. < previous page page_32 If you like this book, buy it! next page > < previous page page_33 next page > Page 33 It has been objected that Hartshorne's God is limited, and thus not religiously adequate.

It takes both sides of metaphysical contraries to describe God (CS 120). Thus, Hartshorne refers to God as being dipolar. He has a necessary pole and a contingent pole, an absolute pole and a relative pole, etc. 23 Hartshorne avoids contradiction by distinguishing various aspects in God. For example, God is not necessary and contingent in the same sense. Although God's existence is necessary (he could not not-be), the particular manner in which his existence is actualized is contingent. Thus, Hartshorne distinguishes existence from actuality.

But if X is something that could not fail to be, the situation is different. One must distinguish the merely useful, or what is good for some purposes only, from the indispensable, or what is required for the fulfillment of any purpose whatever. It is idle to complain of wishful thinking if the idea is required for any wish fulfillment whatever. It is wishful to think that one can ride because one would like a horse, but this is relevant only because there are other wishes which can be satisfied without a horse.
