Sample text

For example, in his letters Paul repeatedly asks for his recipients’ prayers, and believes their prayers are helping him in the midst of dangers and troubles: “You also must help us by prayer, so that many will give thanks on our behalf for the blessing granted us through the prayers of many” (2 Cor. 1:11). Jesus gives a set of commands in Luke 6:27–8: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If we take the parallelism here seriously, Jesus considers praying for others to be in the same category of actions such as loving, blessing, and doing good to them.

So the question of whether or not the possible goods we know about are representative of the possible goods there are amounts to the question of whether or not any unknown good justifies God 44 At least if there are any possible goods we don’t know about. If we do know about all the possible goods there are, then, trivially, the possible goods we know about will be representative of the possible goods there are relative to all properties.
