Dr. Craig has argued that the Islamic concept of God is morally deficient and inadequate, particularly in comparison to the uncondtionally and universally loving God in Christianity, though the latter is not exactly what one might understand when reading passages like:
However, putting aside the question of scriptural evidence for this concept of God, I wonder if it is not itself morally inadequate and deficient, how it is not the act of loving everyone including the Devil (an embodiment of evil) that is morally deficient.
This is why I sent the following to Dr. Craig hoping that he finds the time to provide some clarification in one of his weekly Q&A posts:
You have argued in some of your work that since God is the greatest conceivable being, since He is morally perfect and since loving is morally better than not loving, that consequently He must be “all-loving”; also, as the greatest conceivably loving being His love must be “unconditional, impartial and universal” even for those who are “damned and who have rejected Him forever”.
– Is it not true then that His love for all includes the Devil? For if it were not the case then there would be at least one eternally damned being whom God does not love or loves less, i.e., He is not all-loving or the greatest conceivably loving being.
– Is it not true that His impartial love is for Jesus as much as it is for the Devil?
– Is it not true that His love for the Devil prior to his fall is the same as it is after the fall, since it is unconditional, not conditioned by the choices of the Devil?
I also hope the answer to this is not the cop-out some Christian apologists have told me, that is, God’s universal love extends to human beings but not non-human beings like the Devil. Because that’s not being all-loving, and the above questions stand in the case of a human devil just the same.
