Is God a Consequentialist?

Answer: No.

Why Believe the Gospel?
The Temptation of Christ…
Pursuing Virtue, Not Clintonism
The Temptation of Christ…
  • James Scott

    Well technically God is not a moral agent given his nature according to Classic Theology. God cannot be coherently conceived as a moral agent who is under the moral law so it’s incoherent to call God a “consequentalist”.

    Rather one should ask “Does the moral & divine law mandate consequentialism?”

    The short answer is no.
