    I'm not at all religious but would like to see what some of you have to say.

    Yes he sure can. He created us and now he can not solve the problem of what to do with us.

    God, Is God because He is the solution to every and all problems,
    So therefore, to create problems is not within his nature.

    So to validate to question, one must first be in denial about the nature God.

    For example, i have the liberty to ask, how many dogs can a kitten make...
    Any one who answers that specific question, in their mind must first affirm that kittens can indeed produce dogs.

    God is not a stupid being who will create a problem. He will do only those things which are good and needful. He don't have time to waste on something foolish.
    just an opinion...

    God can do anything, anywhere, anytime. He created us and in 6 days created the world. It says in the bible that nothing is impossible through Jesus our Lord.

    When God has completed his plans nothing will stop them. We have to remember that whoever does what does not do it without Gods permission.

    Only God allows what is to be done to another. No matter what we plan God has the final say.

    There are no problems for God. What appears to be a problem to humans is nothing to God.  He knows exactly what he is doing and why. People may not understand it, but there is a reason for everything.

    God can do anything. But, God will not do anything that is evil such as creating problems. Man is given free will to create his own problems. God is only a problem solver full of love and grace.

      He created Lucifer, is Lucifer not evil?

      He did not create an evil Lucifer. The angels also have free will, Lucifer "chose" to become evil.

    This question sounds like the old "can God tie a perfect knot he cannot untie."  The idea being that if it is a perfect knowt no human could untie it, but even if God is not human the know would not be perfect if he could untie it.

    The answer to that question and the one here today is that God can do anything. Questions that involve a contradiction of terms or events are imperfect question and therefore not valid.

    God does not create problems. We create problems. God can solve the problems we create, but in his time and not our time and in his way and not our way, or in other words, his solution to the problem may not be the solution we were seeking.

    Hey, maybe that's why we're here. Anybody who follows scripture closely realizes that God can't overcome free will on his own.

    Nobody what you say about God, people are gonna revert back to their rigid, all-powerful, mythological, patriarchal preconceptions that they have been taught. Nobody seems to have the humility to recognize that God is largely an intangible that nobody can completely understand. I would never presume to know entirely, so anything is possible.

    The problem lies with us and not God. God created us and allowing us to explore and understand about life before returning to His Kingdom. God knows all solutions to our problems. It is through ourselves to realize and solving problems to return back to His Kingdom.

    In my opinion, neither any problem has been created by GOD, nor it is so complex to be solved. All the problems to which a person faces in life is created by him and other human being as against his deeds only. Each and every problem consists of it's solution also. We are required to extract the solution from the problems.

    With God, all things are possible, so I guess he can.

      God cannot be God and be God at the same time.

    God is omniscient; therefore, your question is irrelevent.

      If he is omniscient, what is the purpose of prayer?

    2. PlanksandNails profile image81
      PlanksandNailsposted 10 years agoin reply to this

      Purpose of prayer is that we need God to be involved in our lives, and it is way of communicating with Him to align with His will. Prayer in not about God needing us, but about us needing Him.

    What problem has God ever solved? World War I or World War II?
