HOT TOPIC: God's Nature vs His Character

In another thread we veered off ending up discussing the Nature of God esepcially His omniscience and omnipotence.

I hold that God is ALL powerful and ALL knowing and He just chooses not to do somethings and to not know certain things when it suits His plans.

The other side of the argument is that there are certain things God cannot do, like sin. That it is not just Him choosing to not sin but that He is completely incapable of sin, that it is an actual limit to His omnipotence and omniscience.

This thread is meant to give all an opportunity to present arguments for either side.

I will begin by posting a few responses to the last few posts of one other poster in the previous thread.

I just lost my post, somehow,

I just lost my post, somehow, so I will need to rewrite it. I thought I clicked Preview but what I got was an empty Reply screen. When I went Back so much was missing it wasn't worth posting.

I just lost it again. Don't know exactly what I did but I clicked something and it was gone.

Three times. But I now know how. I am trying Opera and it has something called Opera Mouse Gestures. If you hold down the right mouse button a diagram is presented on the screen. Depending upon the direction you move the mouse different commands are chosen. And each direction presents a sub menu with more choices. Rather odd but I guess you can get use to it.

I'll try again later...
