Can God make a rock so big that He can't lift it? (Sye Ten Bruggencate Audio – Objections Answered)

"Balanced Rock" in the Garden of the Gods Park Colorado Springs - Img Src: Wikipedia


Unbeliever (U)           Christian (C)

U - Can God make a rock so big that He can’t lift it?

C – There are many things that God can't do. God can't lie as it says in Hebrews 6:18, and
He can’t deny himself as it says in 2 Timothy 2:13. There's lots of things that God can't do.

U - Well if God is omnipotent and all powerful then he has to be able to do anything.

C -
God cannot do the logically impossible. But the logically impossible is not a power – it’s a weakness.

U – So God is not all powerful then.

C - If you think that this means God is not all powerful then, ok – if you want a God that can do the logically impossible then yes - such a God can make a rock so big he can’t lift it.

U - So there is something that your God cannot do - he can't lift that rock!

C - No. A God that can do the logically impossible, can lift a rock that he can’t lift!

  1. Jesus Christ as a person can not lift up a stone more that 100 kg (220 lb). But Jesus Christ as Creator created every stone and can lift up any stone.
