Did you know that it is impossible to be both omnipotent and omniscient? Theologians claim that god is omnipotent and omniscient. But if one is omniscient, then one already knows in advance everything that will occur in the future. Consequently, one can only do what has already been planned. No choice is possible. Omnipotence thus becomes impossible.
Biblical reference about the omnipotence of god:
- “Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns.” (Revelation 19:6)
Biblical references about the omniscience of god: (The references here are less explicit, but they imply that god must be omniscient.)
- “From heaven the LORD looks down and sees all mankind; from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth — he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.” (Psalm 33:13-15)
- “even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.”» (Psalm 139:12)
- “Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.” (Hebrews 4:13)
- “Lift your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one, and calls them each by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.” (Isaiah 40:26)
