ABSTRACT
The article discusses the thesis on the theological problems in divine command morality (DCM). It says that DCM lead to two problematic conclusions concerning God's image, one on the arbitrariness of God's actions, and the moral goodness of God. It notes that some of DCM's religious supporters failed to describe the inferences of the thesis regarding God's goodness.
