Well, the title says it all. God is omnipotent, so I guess she could commit suicide? Is that theologically plausible?

Thank you for your time.

Chuck Norris cannot kill himself. I'm sure he's tried but got tired of failing.

I think it's plausible that any conscious entity could destroy its own existence. So why not God, if such an entity really exists.

The " she " thing was cute. Why do we humans insist on giving God a gender? I think the real question is why hasn't God committed suicide? Would we know the difference if God did give up and fade into the eternal void? The ugly crap going on in this world is more than enough to push even the creator of the universe over the edge and drink the Kool Aid.

IMHO its may be about giving up, or not caring anymore. It doesn't seem to far fetched that someone, may have told us similar stories. Yet we cant seem to get it right. How do you think you would take that route?

Peace, NRE.

Maybe "God" kills its own consciousness by incarnating as human.

Well if this is the same God that allows people to be tortured forever in Hell and prevents himself from intervening, then I still wouldn't put it past him to kill himself.

Depends on the god that you are talking about, but if you mean the God of Christianity, no.

People often confuse the term "omnipotent" as being some sort of absolute that trumps logic or allows them to create a scenario that disproves God or God's omnipotence through a paradox. "Can God create a burrito so hot that even he cannot eat it?"

God is eternal. That means that he was not created, he cannot be destroyed, he wasn't born, he will not die, he just is. Ergo, no, he cannot commit suicide, that is a nonsensical statement. It is not a statement of his omnipotence, rather a statement of his nature.

Usually God is referred to as "He", but we don't know if that's true. Rather than "It" I'd like to use the female term.

Thank you for your post.

I don't believe that humans can truly erase the energy within. To me suicide is not the end of existence rather it's another transformation.

Maybe a common definition would be: by means of free will terminating all body functions.
