Here is a trick question:

If God is all-powerful, can He create a rock so big that He can't lift it?

God is all-powerful, so there is no rock that He can't lift! Love your question!

thats kind of brain teaser because God is all power full so he could make a rock big enough that he cant lift but he can do anything so he be able to lift that rock but if he cant lift the rock then how does he lift it? :S *pant pant* yeah, i dont want to think about that. to much damage may be done to my brain B)

So in other words Anonymous, in the bold you have clearly said that he can lift a stone that he has made too heavy that he cannot lift it :S So then is he omnipotent? As he should be able to create a task which he is unable to perform as nothing is impossible with him; and you saying he can perform all actions contradicts that. However this means he cannot make a rock too heavy that he cannot lift it meaning he is not omnipotent.

You have been introduced to Omnipotent paradox :whistle:

Hmmm... You weren't kidding about it being a trick question. If you say no, then you are saying that there is something God can't do. But if you say yes, then you are saying it is possible for there to be a rock that God can't lift. Hmmm... I'm going to have to go with...

Good question, I was actually kinda thinking about the same thing, like if everything is possible with God, then can he make something thats bigger on the inside than it is on the outside ( which is impossible) or if we can do ALL things through Christ, then why can't we fly? About the rock question though, no, because God can't fail. :)

I've got something else to ponder. If God is all powerful, can He forget something? If yes, then how can he be all knowing?

I think that...

Only God knows how any of that would work. (Ta-da!)

He can create a rock as big as the Earth, but it still won't be too heavy for Him.
