It is possible for an omnipotent God to allow free will to exist within its creation.
Debate Rounds (3)
Omnipotent: Involuntarily controlling all things at all times in all ways possible.
I wish my adversary the best of luck!
Although I admit that this reasoning has its foundations set on logic, I have to say that my adversary failed to acknowledge some possibilities.
First of all, we cannot rule out his ability to give up his omnipotence for the existence of free will. Nevertheless, this does not mean to say that he is still not as powerful as he was when he was omnipotent. The only difference of the matter is his withdrawal of his nature to continually be in control of everything.
Does he posses the power to relinquish himself from the defined omnipotence? Logical reasoning states that he has.
Can he choose to do so? I can see no reason why not.
With this, we can say that free will was allowed to exist by an omnipotent God, and at the moment that free will is created into existence God removed his omnipotence but still remains all powerful.
By simply stating this possibility, it is immediately proven possible for an omnipotent God to allow free will to exist within its creation. That is unless my adversary disproves my proposed possibility.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro lost the moment he accepted debate under these conditions. Pro made interesting arguments in round 2, but since they contradict the definition of "omnipotent" Con gave in Round 1, they are not valid.
