Yeah, that would be a Paleo Hebrew fail. Their letters of the alphabet were also pictographs. First ancient language to do such. for example the Aleph (A) was a house and the Bet (B) was an ox, the word for Father was "AB" and the pictures meant "Strength (ox) of the house" = "father".

In Paleo Hebrew, YHWH could easily be read as "Behold the Hand, Behold the Nail"... perfect picture of the nailed hands of Jesus on the cross.

There's plenty of big rocks out there.



I guess when was God was acting as Jesus, confined to his flesh and blood suit, there were plenty of rocks he couldn't lift.

The (silly) question isn't really about a big rock but the gravity that exists on the surface on which "God" is standing when "he's" lifting that big rock. No?

Personally, I don't believe in a god that's separated from the universe.

And, the inference to that line of thinking is God driving nails through his own hands, on purpose! Anyway, I thought that YHVH meant "I Am".

There sure are, at least to our perspective. I think such a demonstration could just as easily be done with a pebble.

I am not sure God has the actual legs to stand on anything. Well, all the legs in existence would be part of an omnipresent being, but I never viewed the scenario to be so literal, anthropomorphic, and 'Atlas-esque.'


Personally, I don't believe in a god that's separated from the universe.


"Omnipresent" is a pretty encompassing term isn't it? I feel the same, though I don't feel this universe (or the small spectrum we can perceive) are all that exists. Neither do I see that lack of separation precludes individuality.

Jesus is the Word of the Lord. Nothing was created separate from Him.

Then, in that case, we can assume that Jesus, The Word, also created sin, and is not separated from it.

The Word allowed man free will, by free will man chose disobedience to God.

The fact that there is free will means that God is not a totalitarian.

How can Free Will be of any true value if all choice results in the wages of sin, which is death? Did Jesus sin when he allowed us Free Will? Isn't that aiding and abetting?

No.

We were given ground for merit by obeying the commands of the Most High.

The whole concept of Free Will belies a God who has commandments and punishments.

No, YHWH is a Name, "I AM" is one of His titles. He claims over 100 titles in the OT and NT, but only 1 Name.

Yahweh makes a lot of claims in the Old Testament.

It's starting to look like free will is being confused with freedom.
