Is There Anything God Cannot Do?
Is there anything that God cannot do? If so, does that mean that he is not omnipotent? Now, this actually is a logical fallacy, Sometimes people word this question as is can God make a rock so heavy he cannot lift it? Well, there are things God cannot do. In Titus 1:2, it says that God cannot lie. Therefore, there are things God can do. God cannot do anything that is outside of his nature. God will do everything within his nature, but there is nothing He can do outside His nature such as sin. God cannot sin, because sin is a violation of the nature of God. By the way, when we talk about good versus evil, we understand what good is because it is defined by the nature of God,
Evil is the opposite of that which is the nature of God. So are there things God cannot do? Yes, there are things God cannot do. However, does this have anything to do with his attribute of omnipotence mean, meaning that He is all-powerful? Well, the answer to that is, no, No, it doesn’t. Those are category errors. The fact that He is omnipotent means that He is all-powerful, but it has nothing to do with the fact that He cannot do anything outside of his nature.
