Plato
The world is constantly changing as time progresses. The realm of the forms is eternal and unchanging, what is perfect is unchanging. God is perfect.

Kant
We can only know how God appears to us, we certainly cannot know god as he is. I demolish knowledge in order to make room for faith.

Plantinga
Beliefs about god do not require justification. Belief in an omnipotent god may entail the idea of god limiting his powers.

Descartes
God is perfect in every way. God's omnipotence means that he can do everything including the logically impossible.

Alsem
God is simple and is the ultimate perfection. It is not possible to conceive of anything greater than God. God is the Perfect Good.

Aquinas
God is timeless and self-existent. We may use reason to prove his existence but his nature is known through revelation.
