AbstractDivine omnipotence entails that God can choose to do evil (even though He will not) by taking up a human nature. In showing others by way of example how temptations are to be overcome, His exposure to evil desires in such circumstances is consistent with moral perfection. The view that 'God has the greatest power and is morally perfect simpliciter', is religiously more adequate than 'God has great power and is essentially morally perfect'. The essentiality of other divine attributes to God is discussed, and rebuttals to Anselmian arguments are offered. Copyright © Cambridge University Press 2010.
