Perfect Being Medieval philosophy was mostly focused on God. We’re going to look at the religious beliefs that they had including the problems they held. Predestination- belief that someone is “pre-destine” to go to heaven no matter what they do. Wait I might be wrong at this, need Wikipedia to look this shit up I guess. As we discussed before, Anslem believe that God is a perfect being. Sum of all perfects is not like a island that is perfect in everything. - Omnipotent (almighty or all-powerful) - Omniscient (all-knowing; knows all things) - Omnibenevolent (all-good and all-loving) - Transcedent (beyond space and time) - Eternal - Creator (of all things) - Perfectly Just - Immutable (beyond change) - Necessary (cannot not exist) - Personal Problems for Theism 1. The Problem of Evil 2. The Problem of Predestination 3. The Problem of Justice 1. The Problem of Evil How can God be both ALL-GOOD AND ALL POWERFUL (OMNIPOTENT) And allow evil in the world? This problem is posed in the dialogue by Evodius.
