Currently I’m having a discussion that deals with God and desire. The person I’m speaking with says that Gods desire is proof that God is not perfect since nothing perfect would need, want, or benefit from anything. The argumnet presented is this:
"When God first expressed desire in creating the universe, he was the only thing in existence and hence he was the only thing in existence and therefore the only beneficiary in that instance could only be He and He alone.
Prior to the beginning of the universe, all that was in existence was perfection, and there was no imperfection to be benefitted. From this we reason that if the original existence were perfect, there would be no deviation or change from it. However, the current existence contain imperfection, therefore the original existence cannot be perfect. Since the original existence was composed of God, then God cannot be perfect. "
