    From the metaphysical viewpoint God has the following attributes-
    – Omnipotent i.e. He can do anything and everything. But the problem of evil casts doubt on benevolence and omnipotence of God. Also, the notion of omnipotence gives rise to such puzzles as whether God can create a stone heavier that he can lift and whether he can sin.
    – Omniscient i.e. God is all knowing. Problems arises when we combine two propositions- 1. God is omniscient and 2. Humans acts freely. Then why God’s foreknowledge doesn’t take free will away from the sinners.
    – Immutable i.e. He is forever the same. The notion of immutability seems inconsistency with the biblical idea that God loves, forgives and acts.
    – Omnipresent and eternal i.e. God is everywhere and He is without beginning or end. But the notion of timeless eternity gives rise to problems in transitivity.
