"The only thing God cannot do is perform a contradiction; i.e. He cannot create a rock He can't lift."

Who is limiting God now?

Not I, Peter. If you had not noticed that is exactly what the Church teaches.

If He could create a rock He cannot lift, He would have created something greater than Himself. An impossibility.

As someone who has experienced God's creation outside of the laws -- my last child was conceived at a time when I was scientifically unable to conceive, by every symptom, etc -- I believe God could create whatever He wanted in any way He chooses, without concern at all for any of the rules He madeHiscreations to follow.

Come on, Paul! In a number of posts you have been telling me not to limit God and now you use human logic to define what He can and can't do. You don't think THAT is to limit Him?

As all sorts of cancer and other diseases can go into remission without breaking any laws of course God can heal the body in various ways without any of His laws being broken. I have never argued that He can't work outside His laws. All I'm saying is that those laws are so ingenious that He can work in fantastic ways within them.
