I have been told, here at FR, that God only creates lesser beings.
Is this because he chooses not to create someone equal to Himself, or is God unable to create someone equal to Himself?
What happened before time?
With all respect, instead of obtaining knowledge about God why don’t you seek to know God. Ask him. He knows more about this than freepers.
Can He create a hamburger too big for him to eat? if He can then what’s the point?
“A man is praised according to his wisdom, but men with warped minds are despised.” Proverbs 12:8
“is God unable to create someone equal to Himself”
Same as “can god create a rock he can’t lift???”
not relevant, not the point, sophistry. if you meant it honestly, then just go read the Bible or do some genuine research, because that kind of question is just dumb.
So, if you’ve been told this at FR does that mean you believe it?
It is a logical fallacy to there could be TWO or MORE omnipotent Gods (all powerful).
Neither would then be omnipotent.
... unless you want to define God down to something less than who He is presented as in the Bible. For instance, if you want to define God as the Greeks did - a pantheon of competing gods who were more powerful than humans, but competing with each other (read the Illiad). The Judeo Christian God is omnipotent.
put "omnipresent and eternal" in there as well, and that's my sense of it too. But it's nice to think about that hamburger somebody else mentioned.
Well, there’s always God Jr, Sant0bama.
The BEST response: “With all respect, instead of obtaining knowledge about God why dont you seek to know God”
You mean like a guy that can fill in for him when he’s a vacation?
There cannot exist two omnipotent beings
Ask Satan, he tried it?
It might be a question that makes no sense. There cannot be two beings who are the most powerful being in the universe.
That question has all the intellectual depth of a dog chasing its tail.
One God, one faith, one baptism.
The God of Israel, His only begotten Son Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, these three are one Godhead.
Father knows best.
Why don't you ask Him? You can toss in the question concerning the numeric value of angels on the head of a pin. Such questions don't really serve any purpose other than as mental wedges aimed at the faithful.
While you are asking questions, stop by your local university physics department and ask them to give you just one explanation for the creation of matter from nothing. If they don't have one, ask them for just one explanation for the infinite existence of matter.
