The following links provided weren't helpful.. I used them to discover parts of my answer though. Can someone check my answer and help me with questions 2?

How does the Euthyphro Problem attack modern cognitive religion?

Is there a response that would satisfy the problem?

I need help with the 2nd question.. this Is my answer however:
Euthyphro Problem appears in the dialogue of Plato who ponders on the concept of piety. It is a dialogue between Euthyphro and Plato where Plato questions Euthyphro about the root cause of piety and relationship with God. This has resulted in numerous conflicts and dilemmas about the faith and well-being. Will power and freedom remain in question in this particular scenario and God's omnipotence remains a dilemma. Further, it is a major concern to modern cognitive religion which has its lights upon the omnipotence of God. The response to it is quite satisfactory in terms of individual domain and concerns whereas in the broader view it is often narrow and cannot satisfy the aspect of sovereignty of God, therefore It does not satisfy me

  1. When I have read any of Plato's works, I never tried to apply 2,500-year-old philosophy to modern thought.

    Sorry ... it just doesn't make sense to me.

    I find other problems with your paragraph:

    ------------------
    Euthyphro Problem appears in the dialogue of Plato who(1) ponders on the concept of piety. It is a dialogue between Euthyphro and Plato(1) where Plato(1) questions Euthyphro about the root cause(2) of piety and relationship with God. This has resulted in numerous conflicts and dilemmas(3) about the faith and well-being(4). Will power and freedom remain in question in this particular scenario and God's omnipotence remains a dilemma(3). Further, it is a major concern to modern cognitive religion(5) which has its lights(6) upon the omnipotence of God. The response to it is quite satisfactory in terms of individual domain and concerns(7) whereas in the broader view(8) it(9) is often narrow and cannot satisfy the aspect of sovereignty of God,(8) therefore It does not satisfy me(8)

    (1) "who" refers to Plato? or the dialogue? Remember -- the dialogues are about Socrates' thoughts; Plato was just writing it all down.

    (2) "root cause" is redundant -- delete "root"

    (3) "conflicts and dilemmas" for whom?

    (4) What "faith" and whose "well-being"?

    (5) Exactly who has "modern cognitive religion"?

    (6) "lights" = ???

    (7) comma needed to separate clauses in compound sentence

    (8) correct punctuation needed

    (9) What is "it"?

  2. When I have read any of Plato's works, I never tried to apply 2,500-year-old philosophy to modern thought.

    Sorry ... it just doesn't make sense to me.

  3. Blair, God's omnipotence is not a "dilemma" if you follow this line of reasoning. God is a giving and sharing God. First he has given us rain, sunlight, ever changing winds, the 4 seasons etc. But he wants to give and share so much more...his godhood his powers, his tremendous creative abilities. He literally wants to multiply himself through his human children. But he can't knowing that some of his children want to kill him. So to protect himself and his future everlasting kingdom he has to create a barrier to keep his bad children out but allow his good children in. That barrier is the good character/mindset people need to attain in their human lives. So, in summation, why should people be jealous of God's powers and God-Hood when he wants to give that to them too?
