Almighty (Omnipotent).

“He spake, and they came into being He commanded, and they were created. thus the

Psalmist expressed God's almightiness (Ps. 32:9). God is the Creator of the world. It is He Who

cares for the world in His Providence. He is the Pantocrator. He is the one “Who alone doeth

wonders(Ps. 71:19). However, if God tolerates evil and evil people in the world, this is not because

He cannot annihilate evil, but because he has given freedom to spiritual beings and directs

them so that they might freely, of their own free will, reject evil and turn to good.

With regard to casuistical questions concerning what God “cannot” do, one must answer

that the omnipotence of God is extended to everything which is pleasing to His thought, to His

goodness, to His will.
