Kwinters:  If Jesus is omnipotent and God is omnipotent and they get into a wrass-lin' match, who wins between two omnipotent beings?


Yahweh cheated by turning Jesus mortal.  Of course, as resurrection has already been established as an option prior, Jesus just uses the trope to wiggle out of losing.  :P

LOL.

I think you meant committee and you can’t have a committee of one.

How did you arrive at this conclusion?

Except of course when you're dead.


Or are you saying he was never really dead?




For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit, in which he went and proclaimed to the spirits in prison, because they formerly did not obey, when God's patience waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were brought safely through water. (1 Pete 3)

Unless I am convinced by Scripture and plain reason, my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and I will not retract anything, for to go against conscience would be neither right nor safe.  Here I stand.  I can do no other.  God help me.  Amen.

So he didn't really die.


So the resurrection wasn't a resurrection.

Christ’s body died – just like ours does.


BTW, can you address my other two points?  My feelings are becomming hurt.

Of course it was not really a resurrection.  An Omni Omni would not be able to die.

A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side. Aristotle

Omni Omni is unlimited power.  Inability to die would be a limit on the power.

While the inability to die could be semantically described as limiting, it seems silly to describe it that way practically speaking.

Perhaps but practically speaking  Omni Omni would include the power to become a mortal meaning becoming an entity that could suffer physcial death and then be resurrected by the spiritual being that is Omni Omni.
