This is a philosophical question that may produce a surprising answer. Christian’s often describe God as having an attribute of “omnipotence” which basically means to be all powerful. For our perspective and for our purposes, God is indeed all-powerful, but there are limits! So, can God do absolutely anything? The answer to this question has to be, “no”! At first glance, this may cause us to get nervous but let us give you an example – how would you answer the question, “Can God lie”? God is unable to lie because if He were to lie, this would compromise His moral nature. Can God make a square circle? Obviously not as this would compromise His rational or logical nature. There are many similar examples and the short clip below (from where this examples are taken) provides some reasoned comments that address this issue:
Brett summarises by stating the God can do anything that is consistent with His moral and rational nature. So, for all intents and purposes, God CAN do anything in terms of His unfathomable creative power, His interacting with humanity and most importantly, lovingly restoring our broken relationship with Him. That’s all we need to worry about!
By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.(Psalm 33:6)
Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out: he is excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict. (Job 37:23)
Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite. (Psalm 147:5)
