Powers & AbilitiesEdit
Omnipotence: Classical theism holds this position, but it is widely accepted that Yahweh is not omnipotent in the strictest sense of the word, since there are things he cannot do. These include logical impossibilities, contradicting truth, ceasing to exist, ceasing to be omnipotent.
Omniscience: Classical theism holds this position, but like omnipotence, it is widely accepted that this doesn't extend to the strictest sense of the word. It may be defined as "knowing all there is to know", which means if Yahweh truth knows infinite things, then there exists infinity. Yahweh does not know experiential knowledge, since he is self-sufficient. He does not know what it's like to eat, drink, sleep, grow weary, sex, or anything that involves the senses.
Omnipresence: Classical theism holds that Yahweh is everywhere, and some might extend this to time so that Yahweh exists in all periods of time, i.e., omnitemporality. The problem of Hell arises, since if Yahweh is to reside in Heaven, how then can he be in Hell if he is good and cannot reside with sin? One view is that Hell is simply Yahweh's anger burning. Another problem is Yahweh existing somewhere that is not, which is to say literal nothingness, since the common view in classical theism is that Yahweh created the Universe out of nothing.
