Is God All-powerful?

Here is something that God cannot do - God cannot drive out an army that has iron chariots:

Judges 1:

17 And Judah went with Simeon his brother, and they slew the Canaanites that inhabited Zephath, and utterly destroyed it. And the name of the city was called Hormah.

18 Also Judah took Gaza with the coast thereof, and Askelon with the coast thereof, and Ekron with the coast thereof.

19 And the LORD was with Judah; and he drave out the inhabitants of the mountain; but could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley, because they had chariots of iron.

20 And they gave Hebron unto Caleb, as Moses said: and he expelled thence the three sons of Anak.

21 And the children of Benjamin did not drive out the Jebusites that inhabited Jerusalem; but the Jebusites dwell with the children of Benjamin in Jerusalem unto this day.

Blessed be god and his bible!

Conceptual,manmade gods are always limited in their scope by the ideological boxes in which they are trapped caged contained.So it is no surprise that the biblical god exhibits such limitations,as well as the koranical god of islam.

We all know the christian god is powerless,. Look how he was struck, beaten and agonized mathew 26:67. Any one boasting to be a christian should be ashame of himself.

Stop saying things I never said. I do not believe in the content of the verse, the people that wrote that bible passage at least were honest enough to say that their god had limitations,they said that he was with them yet they could not drive out people with iron chariots after promising them that he has delivered all the lands into their hands.

I do not believe in any of the mythical wars that never happened that were recorded in the bible. Myths like stars fighting against humans in a war.

does the inability of the isrealites to drive them out. . . .a weakness on the part of God?

so why do u believe the contents of this verse and not the other verses of the bible?

Simple the people wrote that their god was with them, they drove out the inhabitants of the mountain but could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley, because they had chariots of iron. The verse is very clear. Now bring forth you own spin.
