What does it mean that God is omnipotent?
God is obviously powerful in regard to controlling matter and making planets etc. He doesn't appear to have any problems doing whatever he chooses in this regard _ omnipotent. But the scriptures inform us that God cannot lie. Also Lehi states that if certain things were the case that God would cease to be God. D&C 93 informs us that without freedom of choice we would cease to exist. So could God keep us in existence and without choice? Also it informs us that intelligence can't be created or made. Therefore the question arises as to omnipotent over what?
