Referring to questions 2715, 2740 and 2746 on this site. The respondents to the mentioned questions (Allen Stairs, Peter Smith and Nicholas D. Smith) seem to concur that an omnipotent God need not be able to perform a dialectical task. This idea seems to presuppose that God is subject to (under) the order of the universe and that there is little or no ontological distance between God and creation. The problem with this view is that it seems to make God determined by his own law. If we should increase the ontological distance between God and creation, whereby placing God above (not subject to) his law, it would also be problematic because it seems to make God whimsical and untrustworthy. My question: Is it correct to think that issues about the relationship between God, law and creation (and the normative implications thereof) is what underlies the questions of the type “Can God make a rock that is too heavy to pick up”?
