When we consider God, a being that is almighty who created everything that existed we don't usually think that there are things God cannot do. There are many things man can’t do, but there are also things God can’t do. That’s right God can’t do all things. It is not because He is unable to, that He is limited in power in any way. It is because of who He is in nature. There are guidelines that even God cannot step over. For example God cannot be God and not be God at the same time. He cannot create another God from a creature that would be made equal with himself. The secondary God would be derived from and dependent on the first so it would be finite. Since he had a beginning it could not be as powerful as its originator. One of the first requirements for being God is to be be infinite and eternal, so a created god does not qualify for the job description of being God.

Does God know the future, and, can God interact with our world?

Lastly, does he have free will?

I guess that´s why Satan betrayed God, because he found a weakness in God. Laugh 🙄 Laugh

While I´ll destroy them both oh yeah.

No because he'll have a god himself. 😉

Can God create a poop so large, and dense, that He himself cannot pass it?

Yet there are many things, as the bible admits, that are (g)ods. Lesser beings who "seem" god-like to mankind, but are not "the" (G)od.

It is interesting, because I don't believe God sees the future....well not in the way we imagine someone sees the future, as if it were a foregone conclusion, like a book we can just skip ahead a few pages and read or something.

I believe that part of Gods nature is that God is, sort of, the perfect realization of cause and effect in the universe. One who can take an initial event and perfectly see the end result of that cause and effect chain to the ultimate end.

It is in this way that I think we can have free will (more or less) yet have God who knows all things (in a manner of speaking)....I think "free will" is the variabe that God allows that exceeds his "control"....

However, it is a difficult thing for a man to go against his tendancies or nature, so in this manner God may very well be able to perfectly perceive what the end result of mans actions will be, but I don't think that MUST be the outcome...one could at any time alter ones course and change ones entire outcome.

I don't believe in Pre destiny. Funny but I just did a post on the same subject. {great minds think alike?} Lol.
I believe we are all created as "experience'rs" or extentions of God who through each of us, and all of creation experiences.

Did God create us from something new that he created specifically for the job? Or did He/She/It create us using a part of Itself?
