Discussion 1 to Meditation 369
Why should we necessarily accept that God is good?

This Meditation has sparked a thought in me. I would like deists to answer the question, "Why should we necessarily accept that God is good?"

It seems to me that Christians (and other deists) define God as the epitome of goodness, yet they don't have any direct evidence of this attribute. Why cannot the Supreme Architect of the Universe be just as vain, capricious, devious and downright evil as any human. Omniscience and omnipotence do not necessarily confer perfection. As we say, power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. The Old Testament even shows Him as very human.
