I believe this passage will answer your question....
"... As it is written: See I lay a stone in Zion that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame."
If you seek answers from the right source, answers will be provided.
If you seek for gold in a latrine, you will not find any.....
Always remember, Go to the source...
Heads up, mantle and I will attempt to explain Mike's question to you.
I'm going to spell it out for you very simply.
IF Yahweh is all powerful, can he create a rock he can't pick up?
"Of course he is all powerful," you say, "so yes, he can."
BUT if he is all powerful and CAN NOT pick up something, then he is NOT all powerful.
By the same token, if he CAN'T create a rock he can't pick up, then he is NOT all powerful.
This is called a paradox.
Since neither answer can be true, we must look to the question to find out why.
The question shows us that Yahweh IS NOT all powerful, no matter what you think the correct answer is.
If he is not all powerful, then the bible is incorrect.
This demonstrates that the bible was just written by superstitious goatherders.
"God" disappears in a puff of logic.
Logical thinking. Awesome, it's it?
