    Can God Commit Suicide?

    This is an interesting question I thought of today, and I was wondering if WiiChat had any sort of idea about it. ( For the record, this is in the context of the Christian god, to avoid confusion). We all know the legend that God made Jesus Sacrifice himself to save humanity from it's sins, but could God make that ultimate sacrifice?

    If he could, would he still be Omnipotent? If he couldn't, would he be Omnipotent?

    Discuss.

    God can do anything
    Yet God can't die
    Yet God can make the impossible happen
    Yet nothing can kill Him...

    my head hurts.

    I think the question is, Does God still exist because he CAN'T die, or he doesn't WANT to die?

    And I use words like Death, and Die loosely.

    ( Now we need the strong Christians to come along and give scripture)

    i think he could and he would if he believed that it was best but there would never be a reason for him to do so.
    for the record i don't believe in religion but i am saying according to others beliefs and what i have read(a lot trust me) he can but would never have a reason.

    If there is an omnipotent power, it wouldn't be 'living' by our definition of the word, especially in the sense that all life comes to an end.

    Not to fit a mold,

    Not to join a trend,

    Not to follow a crowd

    Why would he not have any reason to do so? If God truly loved us, why wouldn't he sacrifice himself if it would be best for us in the future?

    because he is god, he could control whatever he wants to, his death would not be needed as a sacrifice he would just fix everything with a poof.

    This is how it goes. God protects us. Its referred to by christians as, "Gods hand rest upon you."
    If God raises his hand, you're open game, and you don't want to be open game. Possesions, mysterious bitemarks, mid-night rape sessions that make you feel like youre on fire, nightmares, seeing things in the mirror, hearing voices, seeing a creature right in front of you, and death happens to open game. No God, no protection
