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.

You got one out of two

BTW, I cannot guess who you mean by "ML" if not Michael_Legna. I do, however, think ML's user name is a scrambling of Michael [the Arch] Angel. Am I correct? If not, it's quite a coincidence.

I am pretty sure he means Martin Luther. Yes my name is in honor of the Archangel Michael (my confirmation saint) and I spell the last part backwards to express humility in the minor aspect of my participation as a defender of God's will and word. But that is only one out of two on the quiz for you and 50% is failing. :)
