There may be a crocodile in a river

If there is a best world for God to create then it appears he would have no choice other than to create it. As Leibniz tells us, ‘to do less good than one could is to be lacking in wisdom or in goodness.’ Since it is strictly impossible for God to be lacking in wisdom or goodness, his inability to do otherwise than create the best possible world is no limitation on his power. But if God could not do otherwise than create the best world, he created the world out of necessity, and not freely. Leibniz’s could not avoid the conclusion that God is not sufficiently free in creating, and is therefore not a fit subject of gratitude or moral praise.
