action, divine

action, divine
   Theists, as opposed to deists, believe that God acts in the world as well as creating the world. Moreover, most theists believe that God not only conserves the world in being moment by moment, but that he also intervenes in the running of the world from time to time in a miraculous way: so-called 'special divine action'. Philosophical discussion focuses on the one hand on the definition of divine conservation and its relation to secondary agency and, on the other, on whether God can do miracles and what the difference is between God's miraculous intervention and his ordinary action. Christian philosophers believe that the greatest divine action was the incarnation.
