Assuming these givens:
(1) God is perfectly just
(2) Something imperfect cannot come from something perfect
(3) perfection must exist for imperfection to exist
(4) Humans are imperfect
(5) Humans must have free will for God to be perfect
I am new to philosophy and was thinking on my own, and came up with an argument. I am looking for rebuttals and explanations as to why something may be wrong or improperly assumed.
If God is required to give people free will (forcing someone to do something is unjust, so he must) and free will can cause humans to be imperfect, would it be reasonable to refer to God and the process of humans becoming perfect through God as perfect? As a result, perfection exists.
Therefore, imperfection exists, which would be a human not following the perfect process due to their free will. Since the potential imperfection is a result of an attribute that allows for imperfection (free will) that is required for God to be just, God and his process remain just, while humans who choose to not be a part of the process are imperfect.
In order for God to remain perfect, imperfections must not be a part of the system. Hell, being defined as the complete opposite of God’s attributes, would be the right place to send those who do not follow the perfect process.
