I can sit in a chair when God is not sitting in it. Can God sit in a chair in which he (God) is not sitting? Can God create a boulder so heavy that God cannot lift it? No: but then he is not omnipotent Yes: but then he cannot lift it, so he is not omnipotent Omnipotence: the ability to do anything that is logically possible to do God is all-knowing - We mean – he knows everything. But can he know falsehoods? No. So we mean – he knows all truths

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
