Damn, now I feel bad about over-reacting. Oh well, another mark on my soul to explain in the Hereafter. If there's yin to my yang, God will be Kirk Vining.

I missed the reason for this thread, what is it about and where can I read it?

I can assure you God is not kvining. God is actually an extremely absentminded old man who wanders the universe like an Alzheimer patient, pulling off Creations and then totally forgetting about them. We have been trying to do something about him for eons, but He simply will not stay in his restraints.

You do not exist. The bible contains no mention of your people!

If you had been paying attention, you would have been informed that Gnomos came into existence in 902 AD. We have a job to do, which is to beguile mankind with paradoxes. Here is yours - can God be both All Powerful and All Good? I would ask Him, but we haven't seen Him for a few weeks. We currently have an Amber Alert out for him in Great Magellanic Cloud, so He should turn up shortly to judge if your answer will save you from Hell.

You call that a paradox? What are you some sort of apprentice gnomo?

Your mind's inability to grasp the concurrent omnipotent and omnibenevolent nature of God does not imply the two are necessarily incongruent.

Start by allowing yourself room to think that what we would all agree is evil was not willed by God, but by man. If you do not, your paradox would call for God to disallow his creatures to have free will, forcing love upon his subjects, thus becoming a cosmic rapist, which would definitely conflict with the omnibenevolent concept which suggested that line of thinking in the first place.

Gnomos are frauds, possess WMDs, are linked to 9/11 and shall be destroyed during the next phase of the war on terror.

But if God was All Good, how can he allow men to will evil? And if he can't doesn't that mean he is not All Powerful?

So you're not beguiled, can't win 'em all.

Because "all good" has no meaning without comparison or a point of reference.

Your conjecture does not follow a logical progression. Man has been separated from his Creator, as such, the Creator cannot be made responsible for the evil of man. What you failed to consider in my previous post is this: If God did not endow man with free will, he would not have been omnibenevolent (the cosmic rapist reference that would have us be brain washed into loving Him).

The indisputable manifestation of man's free will resides in his capacity, and preponderance, to perpetrate evil.

Further, what you are implicitely looking for are scriptural inconsistencies. When reflecting on how could an omnipotent and omnibenevolent God allow a new born to be afflicted with cancer, any properly endoctrinated clergyman will tell you that the root cause is once again, man, who excluded himself for an earthly paradise for a wise pair of tits and pussy, and consequently called upon himself all kinds of misery. Every once in a while, God helps the government by creating mutating retro viruses to set us back on the path to righteousness, conservative supreme justices, and second generation presidents.

Be it noted that I do not believe in any of that crap.
