GOD AND CREATION 35 b) God’s actions Key words Providence is God’s action in the world generally (as creator) and specifically (in human history and miracles). Deism is the belief that God is an ultimate cause or principle but that he plays no active part in the universe.
This means that God is not just a rather detached abstract ‘primary principle’, as implied in Aristotle’s thought, but pure love who acts for no other reason than that of generosity. Key question If God is utterly different from matter, how can he interact with it? iv) God and time God is not the cause before the universe (an idea which many modern Christian theologians have wrongly assumed) because this would imply that God undergoes a change when he causes the universe as a first cause. God is the unchanging and timeless condition or principle which enables everything in the universe to come into being.
Very briefly we might argue that: a) is logical knowledge based on the definition of what 2 means and what addition entails; b) is factual knowledge either based on a very well established report or first-hand experience; c) is very similar to the previous example and establishes Peter Smith’s existence and maybe some of his characteristics; d) suggests personal relationship which is more intimate and complete than the previous example – it could be based on first-hand experience or much more detailed factual knowledge which only he has given me.
