There’s an old, theological mind-twister that asks the question,
The delemma is that in either case, you are left with the idea that there is something that God can’t do. Well I would like to put this question to rest once and for all, and it’s not as complex of a thought as you might think.
Simply put, yes – God can create a rock so heavy that he cannot lift it, and in fact I’m sure he has! I am sure that God the Father, creator of the heavens and the earth, made many rocks that God the Son Jesus, during his earthly ministry was unable to lift.
But the most amazing thing is that while I think there’s no reason to believe that Jesus could lift a 2 ton boulder while strolling around Galilee, I also believe that if he needed to, God could easily fill him the Holy Spirit and give him the strength to pick it up and toss it in the ocean.
So there you go, next time someone brings this question up you can say, “Actually as silly as your question is – I can answer it.”
Trinitarian theology – get some.
