Can God replicate Himself?

No, of course not, that is a crasy idea!


There are many things He cannot do based upon who He is. Although that sounds suspicious, it is not so, for it is only based upon our difficulties in understanding His mysteries. A W Tozer says it well:


“It is, for instance, to rob Him of His infinitude: there cannot be two unlimited substances in the universe. It is to take away His sovereignty: there cannot be two absolutely free beings in the universe, for sooner or later two completely free wills must collide. These attributes, to mention no more, require that there be but one to whom they belong.”

To see it from a different way: He cannot lie because anything He says is true.


Who He is dictates what He can do. ‘He cannot deny Himself’. So if we posit omnipotence, then He cannot give power to another that would restrict it. Because if that was possible, then we could not describe Him as omnipotent in the first place.


Hrm… interesting.
