Why Isn’t _x_ Special Pleading?


This revolves around what _x_ happens to be. If _x_ concerns the nature of God, you likely need to be introduced to something that Van Til called the “Creator-creature distinction.” This distinction is a theologically driven one, revolving around the transcendent nature of God. As such, God is not “bound” by what He creates. God, to the contrary, is who has instituted the bounds which His creatures live within. In essence, this reduces to a category error; when God is being placed within the category of “creature”, this is a faulty categorization. God is not of the same category as His creatures.
