Some strengths of this position (and which I agree with). X refers to God, the infinite Mystery:
- X works through secondary causes;
- X is not arbitrary or capricious but reasonable;
- X requires a free response.
Unfortunate consequences for the human person of this position:
- narrows reason to one method only;
- makes reason extrinsic to the person;
- evidence is limited to empirical and reproducible.
There are, of course, unfortunate theological consequences of the position, but the loss of the human is quite enough for me to seek a more satisfactory solution to the problem at hand.
