Prospects for a Metaethical Argument for Theism: A Response to Stephen J. Sullivan

Journal of Religious Ethics 21 (2):313 - 318 (1993)

Abstract
Disagreements about the success of any given argument often arise because the suppositions of the critic differ from the suppositions of the author of the argument. In maintaining the plausibility of a metaethical argument for theism against the objections articulated by Stephen J. Sullivan, I will probe our differing suppositions with regard to the relation of theological to naturalistic metaethical theories, the starting point for the metaethical argument for theism, and the relation of the qualities of God's will to our obligation to obey God.
