    God is almost omnipotent. He has many limits.

    Omnipotent is defined in part as having power or authority without limits IOW, almighty.

    Seems to me that God has a few limits.

    He cannot reproduce true.
    He cannot enjoy sex.
    He cannot reproduce without bestiality or cross species breeding.
    He can only reproduce half breed chimeras like Jesus.
    He could not create a heaven without Satan.
    He could not create Eden without evil in it.
    He cannot control wayward demons or devils.
    He cannot sin, although scripture says he does.
    He cannot live without needs like adoration, honour, obedience, love.
    He cannot accept a soul into heaven without us accepting Jesus and human sacrifice.
    He could not forgive sin without having Jesus sacrificed.
    Feel free to add to this list.
       
    How then can Christians say that God omnipotent, all-powerful and without limits when he clearly has many?

        Neither do you if this is your best apologetics.

        Refute or go learn of your God.
        Plain denial is for children and the stupid.
        Not quite sure about you yet.

    How do you know he didn't do all that naughtiness on purpose? Maybe he just wanted a little bit of drama. It probably gets boring being Almighty.

      No one can fathom an unfathomable God.
      I am going by what I see and the usual Christian dogma.

    It is all in his nefarious plan to get all the sheep. I cheated...I read the end of the story.

      Sheep are good for fleecing and eating.
      Just what religions want.

      Intelligent moral people are not.
