So recently I was engaging with a atheist who thought he could shatter my reality with the question “Can God create a rock so heavy he can’t lift it?”
Instantly I thought about how illogical of a question that was, but apparently she thought that any answer would prove God to be not all powerful. I kindly explained to them that God cannot do something that goes against his character. For example, God cannot lie or God cannot cease being God. But that obviously doesn’t make him any less perfect or any less powerful. They didn’t buy it. It made me upset how they assumed that flaw wasn’t in the question but in God. I stewed on that for awhile, but it got me to thinking, do we (Christians) do much different?
How many times do we blame God for our own shortcomings? How often do we place the flaw not on us, but on him?
