Divine Command Theory  Something is right or wrong if and only if it conforms to God’s commands Objections  Internal (FINAL EXAM) o In Plato’s dialoge Euthyphro, Socrates asks Euthyphro: “Is the pious loved by the gods because it is pious, or is it pious because it is loved by the gods?”  In other words: is what is moral commanded by God because it is moral? Or is it moral simply in virtue of being commanded by God?  God loves the good because they are good  The thing’s goodness is independent of God  God’s love makes that thing good – God can change the good  Ex. if God says murder is wrong, is that the only reason why it is wrong? What if he said murder was right?  God’s nature is the good – essential part of God to be good – he does not will the bad  Why does God command it? If he says it is good, it is good  If such independent value exists, then it does not depend on God  If the good is independent of God, then God is not all powerfu
