How Do I Answer?


My relative just sent this snide question and I need a good Christian witnessing answer. The question is this; “Can God make a bigger rock than he can move?”


This is a trick question that has no answer and is designed to prevent any meaningful discussion about the Lord. Your relative knows this and is trying to put you off. A good Christian witnessing response is to say, “When you’re ready to ask a real question, then we can have a real discussion,” and then go away and pray that the Holy Spirit will soften the person’s heart. Jesus said, “Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls before swine” (Matt. 7:6). Until a person is ready to hear, it won’t matter what you say.
