  1. Calvinism and Middle Knowledge.David Werther - 2003 - Ars Disputandi 3.
    In his recent work, Providence and Prayer, Terrance Tiessen considers a variety of views on divine providence ranging from those in which God’s sovereignty is a risky business to so-called no-risk views. Tiessen tentatively settles on a no-risk view he dubs ‘A Middle Knowledge Calvinist Model of Providence.’ I argue that, given a compatibilist account of free will, an essential feature of Calvinism, there is no room for the threefold distinction between God’s natural, middle, and free knowledge. The knowledge a (...)

    Leibniz and the Contingency of God Exists.David Werther - 1994 - Religious Studies 30 (1):99.
    Leibniz offered two main defences of contingency, the per-se view and the analytic account. 1 I argue that an acceptance of either account requires a rejection of what is now known as ‘the characteristic claim of S5 modal logic’, If possibly P then necessarily possibly P, and that apart from an affirmation of that claim Leibniz could not have either offered an a priori argument for God's existence or considered God exists to be a necessary truth. Since Leibniz considered God (...)

    Animal Reason and the Imago Dei.David Werther - 1988 - Religious Studies 24 (3):325-335.
    David Hume is widely known as a critic of natural theology. Hence he is referred to as ‘the great infidel’. Moreover, when one thinks of Hume's criticisms of natural religion one often thinks of Philo's criticisms of various theistic arguments presented by Cleanthes and Demea in Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion. In his preface to the Hackett edition of the Dialogues Richard H. Popkin writes, Many consider it the most decisive modern critique of some of the major arguments concerning the existence (...)

    The Temptation of God Incarnate.David Werther - 1993 - Religious Studies 29 (1):47-50.
    I discuss Thomas V Morris’s view that the "epistemic possibility" of temptation is a sufficient condition for genuine temptation, and argue that the second person of the Trinity could not have been responsible for resisting temptation if his divine nature included the property of essential goodness.
