Why omnipotence is irrelevant


People say that God is omnipotent, but the average person has NO IDEA what the word actually means. The terms “omnipotent”, “all-powerful”, and “almighty” mean about the same thing. The statement that “God is omnipotent” has some serious problems. For one, it means that God has the power to give up its power. It also means God could give up the other silly attribute of omniscience. I should think it is obvious that a God who could do anything would have no need of worship, blood sacrifice, or for its creation to believe in it. The other problem with omnipotence is that it is impossible for any human to know whether God is omnipotent. What human is omnipotent or omniscient enough to make these assumptions?

I have unusual thoughts on almost every subject. I am as Pro-Life as I can possibly be. I am strongly opposed to violence of any type. That includes rape, war, and (obviously) abortion. Everything I think, speak, and write must be filtered by the effect it could have on the lives of others. If I am in any way promoting violence accidentally, please let me know.
