Christmas morning philosophy

A famous philosopher once propounded the conundrum, “If God is all-powerful, let Him create a rock so large that He cannot lift it.”  This has been shown to be ridiculous, by the rules of logic, because, by definition, omnipotence precludes inability.

However, it is striking to note that only God is so powerful that He could incarnate Himself into the form of a human being who, being born of God, was indeed truly God, and yet also being of limited scope, could not lift a rock. Indeed, God IS so powerful that He can create a rock so large that, in the form of a newborn baby, He cannot lift it.
