Many a skeptic has brought up questions about the faith dealing with the question of God's omnipotence. It is thought that God's omnipotence brings forth all sorts of logical conundrums. For instance if God is a being of unlimited power - he can do absolutely anything. It will be surprising, even to some believers, that there are some things that God simply cannot do. Now before one thinks I've left the camp, think for a moment with me about some basic questions.
- First - Can God Lie? No, he cannot lie, not even by his omnipotence (Heb 6:18). If God is truth, then he cannot think of intentional falsification.
- Second - Can God Change? No, he cannot change (Mal 3:6, Heb 13:8), not even using his own great power. With a second thought, God is also perfect and therefore has no need to change for the better, and could not change for the worst. So the idea of God's omnipotence being used to cause change in himself proves absurd right out the gate when considering God's perfections.
