Can God make a rock so hard that not even He could break it?
If God could make a rock so hard that even He could not break it, then why continue to recognize him as a God?
If god cant break it he isnt all powerful, and if he cant create a rock that hard he is again not all powerful. God itself is a paradox
The Cannot Parodox...
I believe, indeed He cannot create a rock that He cannot pulverize; yet, He can make an infinite amount that we cannot fracture...He is the Beginning and End.
"For by Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through Him and for Him."
He created rock, thus, He has the power to break it. I do believe He would have not created it, if He couldn't break it.
God does everything easy - by His Word; nohing is too difficult for Him.
Let's rephrase the question, leaving God out for the moment: Is there such a thing as an unbreakable rock that has been broken? Putting it that way reveals that the question is nonsensical. It's based on something that can be said in language, but which conceptually cannot exist, like a round square. Can God make a round square? Meaningless question since it refers to a self-contradictory concept. Same with God making a rock so hard He can't break it.
The example you gave of a round square being impossible, well, what if you said a round triangle? I would have pointed to a cone.
And I would point out that those are two different geometric shapes.
I think God can make a rock so hard that only none but He could break.

He could have done it in four or five days if He didn't insist on making most heavenly objects thirteen billion light years distant. Just showing off?

If the God is almighty, can he create a stone, so heavy, that he could not lift it by himself?

In the Christian faith, God is defined as follows: All Powerful, All Knowing. Good, Omnipresent, Loving, etc. etc. But when you put that definition beside the rest of Christian theology, it doesn't work. It contradicts. The Christian God cannot be All Knowing and Good and All Powerful. One of...
