It has been suggested that before the judgement seat of God, the Lord's sovereignty could be called into question. If a man before his maker can claim that God is responsible to His own creator(s), or not justified at all in judging His own creations, (why make me thus?) there is the principle of infinite descent.

Given God exists, the idea of an infinite chain of creators to whom one may appeal at the great judgement is not only indefensible before God, but makes no logical difference - if such Gods exist, they would all agree. That God exists stable in trinity implies there are no necessary "other Gods", certainly there is no requirement to them for appeal.

Good Creators, Redeemable Creation
I argue that if there is a perfect being that created God - we may consider that He only creates Gods whom redeem their creations, or whom have never required their creations to be redeemed. In doing that, we pave the way for a construction of an argument against infinite descent. We must show there is no basis to question the sovereignty of God. If something is made by God, and is to be judged by God, then any at fault coming under condemnation has no argument to appeal to a higher power.

If God Has A Creator
So if every creator must be a good creator, and God is sovereign over His own work, where does His creator have sovereignty? If we limit it merely to judging whether creation is redeemable or not, in that creation is corrupt and God will destroy it someday - there must be to come a far greater act of creation justified by the defeat of evil. It then makes sense to consider this creator of ours as the most high Himself, with no creation by proxy by a creator that created God.

As Long As It Takes
If every good creator is responsible for redeeming his own work, this must be the case or otherwise there must be a most high creator that does all creation and all redemption. The only other possibility is that a most high creator creates and redeems by proxy. Given that, any redeeming God has no quarrel with His own maker. More so, there will be no intervention from above unless all is the work of the most high.

Every Device Of Evil Overcome
Given the possible existence of multiple creators it yet makes sense that there is evil, as well as the requirement that creation be made in a delicate fashion easily corrupted. In order to justify the greatest work of creation ever to be performed, God's strength is in apparent weakness. In the argument against infinite descent, all objections against His laws of virtue as well as His sovereignty are overcome, demonstrating He is a just creator!

The Enemy Is Justified?
The root of the lie against God's sovereignty is with the devil. If such a devil exists. By proposing an X (a creator of God) to excuse his own iniquity there is no other reason than iniquity to do so. The assumption is baseless and as a creation of God, there is no appealing beyond the authority that is absolute. Logic itself renders your complaint meaningless - thus even if He (X) is not present, the decision against the argument is already made.

No Argument Of Infinite Descent
There is great danger in questioning God's right to judge His creations. If a person would be thinking themselves justified before God in doing so they will either have no heart to ask why people try, or will come under judgement themselves in the act. The lie of jealousy is at the heart of the argument. It is attempting to make ones self equal not just with the law of the maker, but of His maker, and His maker etc. Infinite descent reckons back total blasphemy upon you - as perfect judges will always agree.

All Creators Agree
There is no meaning in the argument of infinite descent, God's record He bares of Himself and His Son in the scriptures foregoes any dispute with His right to judge mankind and redeem creation in the manner He chooses. The lie of antichrist is loved by many because they get a cheap thrill of dopamine at the thought of judging God. Not so cheap, when the reckoning arrives.

One Redeemer Of All
You may have missed it in the construction, indeed it seemed out of place that redemption must be permanent after some time t2. By definition complete redemption by a maker of creators must require that all the redemption is done by each creator of his own work, or by his maker. Thus, either God is not responsible to His maker if He redeems Himself, or the maker of creators must justify all creation before making any other creators. The result of the latter in the case of our God Most High is that there is an ultrafilter, and evil has itself a clear purpose before God.

The Argument Against Infinite Descent
There is a simple logical flaw in assuming that there is a more perfect creator than God to whom one may appeal. It is not upon the basis that a corrupt individual is entreating such divine clemency. Rather it is in the expectation that the work of creation by a perfect being is done by proxy. There is no such work: God creates all Himself or none other. Appealing against one's own creator is meaningless. There would be agreement in any chain of creators top to bottom. All of us, every one are subject to the will of our creator.
