Quora Answer: Can God Not be God, if He Can Do Anything?


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

The following is my answer to a Quora question: “Can God not be God, if He can do anything?

This question is a logical fallacy.  When we say “God” here, we are talking about an Omniscient, Omnipresent, Omnipotent, and Omnibenevolent being.  He is both Transcendent and Immanent.  To put it in an analogy, imagine a table.  If that table represents God, then nothing can fall outside that table, not even “nothingness”.  That is a representation of His Omnipresence.  There is nowhere that God is not.  For God to “not be God”, everything would also be “not”, even “nothingness”.  Can we fathom that?
