    God is almost omnipotent. He has many limits.

    Omnipotent is defined in part as having power or authority without limits IOW, almighty.

    Seems to me that God has a few limits.

    He cannot reproduce true.
    He cannot enjoy sex.
    He cannot reproduce without bestiality or cross species breeding.
    He can only reproduce half breed chimeras like Jesus.
    He could not create a heaven without Satan.
    He could not create Eden without evil in it.
    He cannot control wayward demons or devils.
    He cannot sin, although scripture says he does.
    He cannot live without needs like adoration, honour, obedience, love.
    He cannot accept a soul into heaven without us accepting Jesus and human sacrifice.
    He could not forgive sin without having Jesus sacrificed.
    Feel free to add to this list.

    How then can Christians say that God omnipotent, all-powerful and without limits when he clearly has many?

    How do you know he can't reproduce himself ?
    How do you know he can't enjoy sex ? This from someone who has a prophet that is a pedophile
    Number three you have no idea of what you are saying.
    Number four more rhetoric.
    He created beings and gave them free will unlike your god.
    Again free will.
    He can finish off the demons and satan at anytime,has chosen a particular day to do so.
    He cannot break his own laws but how does that not make him ominipotent.
    How do you know ?
    He is the judge he can accept any he desires.
    He forgave sin before Christ.

    Because you make ignorant arguments.

    What on earth are you talking about? He can reproduce. We are His children. We are literally the sons and daughters of God. I dont understand why that is difficult to understand.

    He commands devils and demons and they obey all the time throughout the scriptures. where exactly did you get this idea that they dont have to listen to God?

    God sets laws. Because you dont understand that doesn't mean He is somehow less powerful.

    You also dont understand the definition of All Powerful. He has power to do all things that can be done.

    You ask how I know. I do not. I am speculation with what I see and what is written.

    How do you know that what you wrote is true?

    How is it that you can fathom an unfathomable God?

    Only Christians think god must be a human being. This is due to theirbelief that Jesus is both the messiah and Creator.

    But, given the defintion of god in Genesis and Abrahams description. God is not Human nor is there ever a reason for such a god to stoop to the level of being human.

    Remember, we are "made in the image of God". We humans are not gods.

    (I guess 3 is correct. If you are not christian, that is.)

    I agree that Jesus could not be God and that God would not stoop that low.

    How can you claim to have a brain? Limit yourself to one stupid post a week, it might not hurt as much.
