Page "Creator deity" Paragraph 37
The Jain theory of causation holds that a cause and its effect are always identical in nature and therefore a conscious and immaterial entity like God cannot create a material entity like the universe.
Furthermore, according to the Jain concept of divinity, any soul who destroys its karmas and desires, achieves liberation.
A soul who destroys all its passions and desires has no desire to interfere in the working of the universe.
Moral rewards and sufferings are not the work of a divine being, but a result of an innate moral order in the cosmos ; a self-regulating mechanism whereby the individual reaps the fruits of his own actions through the workings of the karmas.
