Yesterday I got to thinking about the age old question “Could God create a rock so big that He could not lift it?” I think I’ve finally come up with an answer– yes. There’s a caveat, though. This could only happen if He chose to.
The reason that I come to this conclusion is that we were talking yesterday in church about God’s forgiveness and the fact that He promises to forget our sin– as far as the east from the west, buried in the depths of the deepest sea, blotted out. If God can choose to forget something than certainly he could choose not to lift something, and therefore create a rock that He couldn’t lift.
