Can an all-powerful God make a rock He cannot move?
Of course, and He has already done so.
It’s immaterial, whether you believe Jesus is the Son of God or not. It’s enough to acknowledge Jesus made the claim about Himself, as recorded in the Bible. Jesus’ claim to be God is the reason He was legally murdered.
(John 5:18) This is why the Jews began trying all the more to kill Him: not only was He breaking the Sabbath, but He was even calling God His own Father, making Himself equal with God.
Sir Roger Penrose (Knight of the Realm, Emeritus Rouse Ball Professor of Mathematics at Oxford University) teaches that through quantum mechanics electrons can be in two locations at the same time. Scientists like Sir Penrose accept the idea that things are not as limited as we tend to think. To understand a concept that God can make a rock He cannot move, but then moved it, we have to accept the possibility Jesus is fully God but a separate person at the same time. Therefore, when God was crucified, God cried out for an answer as to why God had forsaken Him. For lack of a better term, God experienced a rock He could not move. Jesus, also called the Rock of Salvation, at that moment faced an impossible dilemma. How could a perfectly holy God forgive a completely corrupt mankind? God cried out to God that all was forsaken.
For lack of better words, God had self-doubts; much like those of parents who realize their child is a remorseless mass-murderer— what can they do? Forced into an impossible corner by the fact His Creation had become worthless (Romans 3:12), God wrestled with what to do. What was the point of all His love? Was it really worth it?
(Mark 15:34) And at three Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” which is translated, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”
So, you see, God can and has created a rock He could not move. Fortunately, for those who repent, God can move such an unmovable rock. Confused?
That’s a normal reaction to the Living God.
However, I will share with you that there is something impossible for God to do. And, unlike the rock question, this matter should cause us each deep concern. This point has prompted much troublesome prayer for me.
It’s not possible for God to lie. In Hebrews 6:18 we are told, “it is impossible for God to lie.” This means not even the smallest untruth or hidden meaning in our words will get past a Holy God. Now, this indeed gives us an important matter to discuss.
