* The Bible outright says God's not omnipotent. He's just really, really potent, especially compared to humans, but several scriptures point out certain limitations He has. Several scriptures, notably Hebrews 6:18 and Psalm 89:34, state that God is incapable of lying no matter what. Isaiah 55 has a lengthy tract which states that once God has expressed his purpose, He cannot go back on it but ''must'' fulfill that purpose (Romans 11:29 says something similar about how he can't revoke his own gifts or statements). Isaiah 43:25 states that God sometimes chooses to erase His own memory, and if He does so the memory is LostForever and even He can't recover it. Several scriptures state that God is incapable of changing his own nature (1 Samuel 15:29, James 1:17).

*** The second one. The Bible seems to take the position of "had sex, now you are married."

*** Think of it this way. A pacifist can't attack someone. Ever. Why? Because if they ever did that, they would not be a pacifist. In the same way, God can't lie, sin, deny himself, etc. That would make him not-God.

\n*** You being dead isn't actually a a big deal to God, given that God can bring you back without effort. Some people believe that God kills the righteous to save them from suffering.

*** Everything is part of [[XanatosGambit God's plan.]] You don't follow him? Well, too bad. Sucks for you, God isn't affected. Literally the only person you can hurt is yourself.

*** Evil does not exist. Evil is a word used to define a lack or absence, in this case the absence of good. Good exists on its own. Free will is not invalidated by omniscience, knowing what someone will do beforehand does not mean that the person did not do it of their own volition.
