  3. Didn't God create a limited power of his omnipotent through angels?

It is once asked if God is so powerful can he limit his power and therefore no longer be omnipotent. Or is this a false premise and a logical impossibility like a married bachelor? Like the argument that questions whether an omnipotent being can create a rock with infinite weight that he can't lift it. Well how about the less powerful but immortal beings God created like angels? Eh heh heh.

The rock argument being impossible when based on human abilities that is and that power of God is not defined that way.

Are you asking if God somehow limited his omnipotence by the creation of angels? I don't get it. Why would the creation of angels be any different than the creation of aardvarks?

Nobody knows what omnipotence means in practice, so this question is unanswerable. I see no reason why not, but I have no mechanism to explain this in any case.
Is it naive to dream of a world without war?

Consider this:
Scientifically it would be impossible for an object to have infinite mass, except in theory if the object is travelling at the speed of light. This will then require infinite energy.
So then how do photons, with zero rest mass, experience existence at the speed of light? In theory, time and distance would be irrelevant to the photon. If we can calculate the time it takes for light from the sun to reach the earth, the photon has aged 0 and traveled distance 0??

If one of the major attributes of God is being light, not being a photon, then in theory not having zero rest mass, meaning having infinite mass, infinite energy, et al. In effect somewhat explaining omnipotent?

How about them? What do angels have to do with the omnipotence of God? I don't see your point

I often wonder: what are extraterrestrials? Do they have DNA? Did the life on our planet receive DNA from extraterrestrials? I am not sure where the DNA has its origins. How did the extraterrestrials come to be? Are they physical or spiritual beings? Perhaps they are angels?

There are so many things to cause me wonder!

American television is trashy it seems to me when I have bothered to view it. But I can watch this man all day on my Amazon TV. He is a noble spirit.
I'm a little slow.

There are angels and demons (fallen angels). Our DNA was received from the Uncreated, Creator of all things, supreme being whom has made Himself known to us by the Name: I am that I am. Hebrew tetragrammaton YHWH.

Pondering such questions is as fruitful as trying to figure out how to drink a brick.
I don't get it either.
