Types of Sovereignty (video)

Posted by

Greetings! In my discussions with fellow philosophers I have often come across people likening the sovereignty of God to earthly sovereignty. They have done this in an attempt to show that God can be sovereign over the universe and still leave us with certain freedoms. I don’t agree that this is possible, and in this video I describe some of the distinguishing characteristics of God’s sovereignty which make Him different from an earthly sovereign such as the Queen of England.

I hope that you enjoyed these reflections on different types of sovereignty. For a thorough exposition of my philosophical perspective, please take a look at the book mentioned in the video – God’s Grand Game – which is available here.

In next week’s video I’ll be moving on from talking about God’s attributes to a discussion of how God relates to the human mind. Thank you for watching and I’ll see you again very soon.
