"The proposition that God is goodness works, but only if one dispenses with the notion that God is interventionist/omnipotent." This fails on two counts. The first is that it is a denial of all expectations associated with the Incarnation. The second is that the growing environmental crisis, driven by an overwhelming materialism and limitations to the moral potential of our species, make a nonsense both our claims to be spiritual beings and our 'stewardship' of our planet. The model: " If God is indeed the latter, then too much horror happens on Earth to sustain the notion that God is goodness." is only brought into intellectual disrepute, and rightly so, as existing religious tradition has no definitive example to offer in the name of righteousness and truth. So there is obviously something seriously missing from the religious conception 'theology' has created in the name of tradition!
