Freedom, human and divine

Abstract:
In this paper I seek to show how God's freedom is not reduced or His power diminished by His inability to be less than perfectly good even though ours would be. That ours would be explains why it might prima facie appear to us that there is a 'conceptual tension' between some of the claims of traditional theism and reveals some interesting (well, to me anyway) differences between human freedom and divine freedom.
