What Can God Not Do?

Good day friends, i want to ask a simple but controversal question.

Please note i just want to note your view about the question since you can impose your thought on any other person.

The question is "is there a thing that God can not do? or what can God not do?

Hoping to read your view soon

Does it really matter? I didn't complain about evolution. The word betrays its meaning. Thats good enough for me. I know enough to know that I am not from anything other than "your Adam." borrowing from your language below. It is you who needs to pinpoint the date you know for certain that the earth "evolved," in your nonsensical evolution hypothesis!

And when you think knowledge is complete, then you may find a new grade of knowledge, better than what you have thought was "absolute!" Should I be wasting my time in your style of thinking? My answer is no. This is why I am going to entertain your evolutionary discussions.

You could have fooled everyone. Your location in your profile, which I just checked, in order i might best respond to you, arries some Chinese writing. Is there any reason that a non-Chinese language speaker, like me, will think you are in ther non-oriental location? Your excuses against my assumption is nothing short of grand standing.

Atheism does not claim omnipotence/omniscience.

Can god create an object that would be too heavy for him to lift?

Fine dearie, just nursing an aching gum, didn't have fun at with the dentist.

Na wa self for my philosopher, but don't you think that those statements are too small to assume that what he was questioning was the existence of God?

I think the nature of God is what he was after.

What has atheism done to better the world not really the issue is it?

@Chrisbenogor,

How body? I wonder if your philosopher actually had any real gist to hold unto - just curious.

Let us even assume that there was "no God", question is -

. . and if there was "no God", how has atheism solved evil in the world?

Oga I am beginning to sound like a broken record oh, is that what you know about evolution? Just tell me how much is the enough you know because so far I can tell you are very ignorant of the issue. See I don't beat around the bush or look for other things to dodge questions that I was asked. Because of my benevolence let me lighten the load for you, how long ago do you think this earth and your adam was created let us start from there because evolution is too hard for you to understand.

As for china I don't know what you are talking about I like the language that's why you see it there I just let you go on and on about china because that's what you like to do.

@post again

Maybe some of the words of a famous philosopher will help

Is God willing to stop evil but not able- then he is not all powerful

Is God able to stop evil but not willing- then he is not all loving

Is God able and willing to stop evil - then why is there still evil in the world

Is God neither able nor willing to stop evil - then why call him God.

Again I know enogh. Enough to know that my forefather, Adam was not a monkey and did not come from a monkey. But was created as a complete and separate "specie, known as Human/Mankind!" Thats enough for you man.

By baby is there presently. She may take back with her, a baby girl abandoned in an ophanage by that cruel and racist skin color and ethinic madness that they "fake up," when you deal with them, just because the child is a product of black man and oriental mother!

I really use China man as my own term to get under your skin. If I want to deal in China, I already have my contacts. Alhamdulillah.

And there is something called natural desaster! There were a lot of goods that came from Katrina. The last hurricane season was a proof of that, in New Orleans. They got of "dodge," ample time before it even hit. The levy was made stronger and still improving on it. And before that, we read in many history books, where evil persons, or people were destroyed, in order that good people might live. The destrucyion of Pharaoh, the Egyptian tyrannical King is a good example. Or who help Moses to single handedly destroy the great army of Pharaoh, by only using a stick that he easily carried in his hand?

The death of Adolph Hitler is another. God checked the third reich with the rising up of America. I hope you get it.

Look at all those people who might have perished in major desasters, and from the events, you will read accounts of so many miracles! In a plane crash sometime ago, all the adults died, and the only one who survived was a little child.

The other day, I saw a video on You Tube about a Leopard who hunted and killed a mother monkey, yet saved her little baby. Check it out man. You heart should jump when you watch it. Except that you may be cold-stone hearted.

I know enough to know that I am not a monkey! I know enough that Spermed egg can actually become a matured and complete specie, if all conditions are normal throughout the developmental period.

Stop it, China man. You bore me sometimes, since you never had answered my inquiry about the Augor Ethnic tribe in China. You are running from pillar to post and yet you said nothing!

@mazaje (m):« #31 on: Today at 02:13:44 PM »

I heard you Finnish. You can take good opinion. And, oh its spelled Allah!

Whats shameful is your lack cogent thinking. Does everything have to be proven to you by the entity in the position to accept that the occupant of that position is truly the holder of the office?

I remember that I was not born before my father lost both of his parents. But without any doubt, I knew from hearing the stories of these noble people that my father did not start a life without a father and or a mother!

And my children were never told that I was the husband of their mother before they knew that I am their father and their mother was my wife and hence, I am their mother's husband!

Did anybody had to sit you down to know that your parents were husband or wife to the other? If you were not, then know that those signs and speeches that helped you to know your place in your parents' lives and their relationships with each other should be a similitude to your "wanting" of God's existence!

I guess the Biblical peoples (Jews and Christians) will have to get back to you

on this "accusation, especially when you see that they will have "problems,"

telling us who is the Truly universal entity known as "God," to those of us who

believe there is one. That has to be the same single entity that you "disbelievers

of His existence are struggling so hard to proof or establish!

In Islam, read the Qur'an, you will not find the same condition of lying or multiple

head god(s). There is Only One God Lord Creator, whose name is Allah! He says

that His way is unchanging. You will see it exactly like that in the Qur'an.

@manmustwac: #15 on: Yesterday at 03:48:05 PM »

If Nigerians, altogether abandoned religion, without a change of " deficiency in thoughts and conscience,"

and adopt the good and excellent quality of good citizenry, will nigerians and nigeria not be "roasting,"

in exactly the same way?

What about america who has at least in a general sense believe in "religion," yet it is still doing well? There

is a saying in the present day "america," that indicates that she is the pulse of the world. (When america

sneezes, the rest of the world catches 'a cold!'). Look at the financial crunches that is happening in america,

right now. Evey part of the world is feeling the wisp of it. Tell me a country that does not have "religion," that

is unaffected?

Even when USSR was in existence, the "believing america, single handedly enginered its destruction! Cuba, is

a country that is stiffening "religion," please tell us its current comparative advantage over or to America?

China began to improve when "absolute" communism of socialism was a thing of the past. At least they,

by and large recognize a "Lord God Creator!" Unlike you who believes that you are a different brand of "monkey!"

By the way has this single belief helped you, without your need of people who belief otherwise?

@huxley (m): « #16 on: Yesterday at 04:17:00 PM »

He is not lifting of object, in the first place. How then do you

deceitfully proposes a lift of "too heavy?" Can you show me

anywhere in Qur'an that God "lifted?"

@euromilion: « #17 on: Yesterday at 04:22:07 PM »

Neither is necessary to be changed, because "Satan," is already condemned. He likes it like

that. Satan choice within his freewill was to be evil and unrepentance. Are you like that man,

with a very hard heart, full of deceit?

Hell is a place to punish evil doers and Satan, their chief instigator. Why will it be a place of

peace, which is paradise? God way is very consistent. Read the Qur'an to learn about God.

Proof that God Lord Creator is One. There is no multiple god(s).

@manmustwac: #21 on: Yesterday at 05:09:34 PM »

Have you been able to use rationalization or logic to prove that God does not exist? Have you been able to use rationalization and logic to prove that you know all the unknowns? There must be something that you do not know! Afterall, at best you were ignorant, at a time in your life of all the things that you know now. You were taught enough to be convinced! Please use the same concept to teach yourself, or learn from those who know that God exist to discover His existence.

Otherwise please good and undisputable evidence that show that God does not exist! Just hypotheticating it, does not make it correct. Allah says about His existence, do human not look into the way the creations (all things) are in a single order to see that there is a Creator, a Lord God in charge! Can you dispute that man, just because you have not see Him? Have you seen the wind when it suddenly blows, hard or gentle, except that you see its effect?

Is God the Creator of that wind not Superior and even more discreet and should be more Unseen than the wind?

@IDINRETE: « #22 on: Yesterday at 06:47:30 PM »

The difference between the Muslims, on one hand, and the Christians and your pagan forefathers, on the other hand, is that the Muslim has One Single God Lord Creator, with a proper name; Allah. Even the Children of Israel, in their semitic variant of language calls Him Eloi. Eloi is very similar to Arabic Allah. Try to pronounce them both. Then try pronouncing Yahweh and or Jehovah and compare it to Eloi. You will get my drift.

The Christian still erect a couple of gods, specifically, Jesus between them and God Lord Creator. They mislabel this God Lord Creator, through the silly but generic adaptation from the Jews, as father, while truly He is the Creator and never father, because there is an earthling entity for that, except in the cases of Adam, Eve and Jesus! Your forefathers did the same thing with erecting many gods, based on their views of what they want, between them and God Lord Creator.

Please know that only in Yoruba language that God Lord Creator is called Olorun and other unique names. The other NIgerian, African and worldly tribes and ethnicity have names for Him, in their specific ethnic languages!

@mazaje (m): « #23 on: Yesterday at 07:15:46 PM »

Unless you are a yoruba or speaks the yoruba language

as if its your first language, you cannot make such a

declaration. It is Olorun, not Oloron! I think its typo, but

I just want to bring it to your attention. Maybe its a way

for you to reflect that you maybe making such easy to spot

mistakes in other issues. A good one is your clear but wrong

statement about Olorun and Christian Jehovah, and Muslim

Allah. Ask the Yoruba Christians. They will tell you who they

"think" Jehovah is relative to that yoruba word "Olorun?"

I already answer the Islamic opinion, by my defense of the

integrity of Christianity and Christians. We may not agree, but

they and their religion in my eyes are head and shoulders better

than your total unbelief!

And how did nature "suddenly" appeared with all it contains? Is there not a force that has power over it? A God of nature? The Lord of nature? The Preserver of nature? The Provider of nature? The Creator of nature? The One Who nature cherishes without your limited knowledge? Afterall you do not know everything, or do you?

"Could any Yoruba native speaker correct the spellings and translate the following popular song for me?

Kile lese Olorun mi Kile lese

Ehin ti eda aiye atorun kile lese

Kile lese olorun mi ki le lese

tale julo Olorun mi tale julo

tale julo Olorun mi tale julo

Ehin ti eda aiye atorun tale julo

Tale ju lo Olorun mi tale julo

Thanks and God bless"

we need to address and clarify the fundamental issue of whether olorun is the same as jehovah/yahweh/Allah,

if this so called "god" is the same being that our forefather worship, how come the christian missionaries and the arabic muslim did not agree and accept that olorun is the same as god, but still labelled them as heathen and pagans, which means our forefathers has no concept of jehovah/yahweh,Allah in their belief systems,

if christians and muslims would not agree that their gods are the same, likewise olorun should not be equated with those variant gods.

@Olaadegbu: Thanks for your translation. But you should notice the tone of the poster. His tone of reverence to the Almighty. If he, the poster had been from a culture where there clear thought of intonation when you respect and when you are not, it will seem that it is a plural "Pronoun, eg you, as in the Kile." But we know that this is how we talk to our elders. Henc it is no wonder that the poster uses a second person plural, in a definite majestic tone. Kudos to you people.

@KAG: Your limited knowledge about the world, and the physical and visual issues, of our days are all signs of your inefficiency to even begin to realize that you just did not appear on this plane, by accident.

Your kind of persons have argued so irrationally about things that are invisible: God the almighty, all His Angels, other spirits that we call jinns in Islam, Hellfire and paradise, and yes, indeed heavens, all the 7 layers of them. The lowest of the heavens, is an envelope for all that science will ever discover and even there will remain something undiscovered till the day the earth will perish.

How then, do you continue to tell us what is unseen, especially, when science is still just at the fringes of discoveries. Please tell me if you can, can you see the back of your neck, without anything to aid you? When you can, then come back to tell us how. As a matter of truth, post it on Youtube and let us view it for validity. I am very confident that you can never see the back of your own neck or the part of your face and neck before your shoulders. Thats even in frontal part of your body, withput you using anything as aid and you do not even have to do any gymnastics.

If you can not see any of these part of your own body, how do you then hope to disprove the existence of God, or discover him, when you fail to even discover your own self?

If you use mirrowr to see these hidden part of your body, then know that the mirror to see God is this whole world itself. Start by looking at yourself about the purpose of life. Why are you here on earth? Is there a reason that you human instead of other things that you see or not seen?

This is a very good question, and the answer is YES. There are things God can not do, God can not do ungodly things. God can only do Godly things.

For example:

1) God can not lie or play monkey tricks.

2) God can not beget children and is not begotten.

3) God can not feel hungry or crave for things human desires, such as sex, seek for help, food, going to toilet etc.

4) God can not kick you outside of His domain and put you in another one which He did not create because, all existing domains are His and He reign supreme in all.

5) God can not create another God, because God is uncreated.

6) God can not be unjust.

The list is endless!

@the seeker.

The concept of Salvation involves two parties only.GOD and MAN.

In the garden of Eden,God commanded man not to eat from a particular tree,because he will die by doing so.but,man disobeys His command resulting to the reign of death(Roms5:14).its written in the Bible that God is Love(1jhn4:16) and He wants to express His love to man(jhn3:16),His desires is to save man from the penalty of death.but He is restricted by His Righteousness.He cant save man merely according to His nature (which is Love)without conflicting with His Righteousness(His methods,procedures and moral standards).so to save man because He loves man,He must find a way to do it that is in agreement with His own Righteousness.

He commanded man "But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,thou shalt not eat of it;for in the day that thou eatest there of thou shalt surely Die"Gen2:17.and since His a Righteous God,His word to man in the garden cant be annulled even by Him.so man must bear the fully wages of sin which is death.

As there's only two parties involve.the only way to solve the problem of sin which result is death is (1)deal with the one(man)who has sinned,(2)deal with the one(God) who has been sinned against.these are the two Righteous ways to solve the problem.

A third party has no right or authority to step in.

God is love and He wants to save man from death,the only Righteous way is for Him bear the sins of man on the cross.

But here arises another problem,for He to bear man's sin He have to die;and its impossible for God to die(1Tim6:16) these verse tells us that God is immortal.there is no possibility for God to die.Hence,for God to bear the judgment of man's sin against Him.He has to take on the BODY OF A MAN(Hebrws10:5-6).Christ became a man so that He could be offered up as a burnt offering and sin offering to deal with man's sin.Hence,our Lord Jesus became a man to be crucified on the cross.He is not a third party;He is the first party.

Because He is God(one of the party)He is qualified to be crucified on the cross,because He became a man,He can die on the cross on our behalf.

His qualification to be crucified is because He's one of the party.He's being able to be crucified is because He became a man.

If the Redemptive work of Salvation is to be Righteous,Jesus of Nazareth must be GOD.
