A lot of people like to argue in favor of the possibility of Biblical stories through omnipotence.

Assuming the stories are based on true events, How omnipotent is God?

Is he truly all powerful? Or is he maybe just very wise and able to do anything?
Wisdom is found where the wise seek it.

Omnipotence refers to power, not knowledge.

When used in the Bible it means that all power which exists in the universe is from God. An apt analogy would be that God is the Duracell powering everything in the universe. So even the power atheists use to resist God, is God's power. (Part of the reason why unbelief is bad)

So asking how powerful God is would be illogical. All power there is, is Gods.
