Hi, I've always been confused by Kant's moral argument because different textbooks say different things. Could someone explain it to me and what Kant means my the Summum Bonum and the Good Will? Thank you!

So the moral argument works like this, it's quite circular.

1-There’s an objective moral law that reason tell us to obey

2-This requires us to attain the highest good (summum bonum)

3-We are only obliged to do something if it’s possible for us to do

4- We can’t attain the highest good unless there’s a God to help us

5-Since we’re obliged to attain the highest good, God must exist to help us

the circle being we are obliged to get the highest good, we can't get this good unless god exists, god must exist to help us to get this good
