God's omnipotence

I posted in the Christianity Symbolism thread yesterday about an early church experience.
Got me thinking of God's omnipotence. Googled away, and found a, to me, perfectly valid argument as to why he's not.

He cant please everybody.

Any god that is a "he" or "she" is not going to be omnipotent in the first place.

Yes, I am not omnipotent, and I am a he. Don't you see how the two go together?

You don't need to be omnipotent to see the connection. "He" is a personification where as the concept of omnipotence is not. Therefore "he" cannot make a rock that "he" cannot lift, because you are mixing a personification with omnipotence. That doesn't take omnipotence to understand.

I don't know what the hell you are talking about. If you are just going to be hostel and not really want to talk to other people, then why make a thread in the first place?

The idea of an omnipotent being is incomparable with calling that being a "he". It leads to silly questions like "Can god create a rock that he cannot lift?". The reason that question is silly is because we are not talking about an omnipotent god, but instead an omnipotent personification.

Your idea was that because God cannot make everyone happy, therefore he is not omnipotent.

Is that correct?

It wasnt my idea.
I also said it was, to me, a perfectly valid argument.

I can think an argument is perfectly valid and not agree with it. I never made my actual opinion on the argument known.
So basically, stop putting words in my mouth yo. wink

I just asked you a question. A question in no way ever putting words into persons mouth.

It is a very silly argument. It assumes sense everyone is not happy, that an omnipotent God cannot be omnipotent.

What if God doesn't want everyone happy? Now the argument falls apart.
