“If God can do anything, then can He make a being more powerful than Himself?” This is a twist on an “old trick question: ‘If God can do anything, can He make a rock too heavy for him to lift?’ or ‘ … can He make two plus two equal five’ or ‘make a square circle’, etc.” According to Dr. Jonathan Sarfati the basic answer to this question is “An all powerful God can do or make anything, but it’s meaningless to say that he can do or make a nothing. A logically contradictory state of affairs is not a thing at all, but NOTHING.” You can read more details in his article “If God can do anything, then can He make a being more powerful than Himself?”.
