Omnipotence as a Perfection of God

This article deals with  the  concept of omnipotence, which is very  important for  contemporary analytic philosophy  of religion. Within the analytic tradition it is usual to  show  an apparent tension between God’s omnipotence and other divine attributes. In response, some authors have proposed their own ideas on how the classical problems of omnipotence can be solved in terms of possible worlds theory. In this paper we consider the approaches developed by Geach, Adams and Plantinga. While admitting that each of them has made a significant contribution to the refinement of the concept of omnipotence, we point out a number of important challenges that these authors were not able to overcome.
