Debating An Atheist


I am in a debate with someone that denies the existence of omnipotence and perfection, especially as it concerns God. Can you help me with an answer?

Also, do you know a good response to his question “Can God make a rock so heavy that he can’t lift it?” And, “Can God make a dance club so exclusive that He can’t get in?” I told him that those two questions appeared to be ridiculous to me but his response is “See? You can’t answer”.

He, of course is an atheist who is constantly using atheistic books, films and other material to disuade believers and I am not qualified to really debate with him but I am trying. I would appreciate any help you could give me.


You’re right, these questions are ridiculous. They can’t be answered, and they mock the whole idea of God. That’s obviously their purpose.

Paul said that the man without the Spirit can’t accept the things of God. They are foolishness to Him and he can’t understand them. (1 Cor. 2:14)

Tell this man that you’ll pray for God to reveal Himself to him, but don’t stoop to his level anymore. Belief is a matter of faith. Debates don’t change anyone, and a true believer can’t be dissuaded.
