Omnipotence and necessary moral perfection are compatible: a reply to Morriston

Abstract:
In this paper, which is a reply to Wes Morriston's 'Omnipotence and necessary moral perfection: are they compatible?', I argue that, contrary to what Morriston suggests, a classical theist need not admit that omnipotence and necessary moral perfection are incompatible. Indeed, I shall argue that a classical theist can show that an omnipotent being is of necessity morally perfect.
