The sovereignty of God is a fundamental tenant of Christianity. Merriam-Webster defines sovereignty as “supreme power especially over a body politic, freedom from external control, autonomy, controlling influence”. Within this concept, we might think of the ultimate authority of God’s word, His omniscience, and His omnipotence.
The possibility that there are things God cannot do may seem completely contrary. In fact, there are religious belief constructs that place God’s sovereignty above all else, even man’s free will. The fundamental argument is that there are no limits that can be placed on a sovereign God. But are there things God cannot do, even One that is all-powerful and all-knowing?
