This premise is debatable, and can logically be demonstrated to be erroneous: If one acknowledges that God is omnipotent, all power, where does the power to act against His will come from? It can only come from the denial that God is omnipotent, or the dubious acknowledgement that there is another power apart from God, a simple error of bad logic, superstition and erroneous thinking, which, if affirmed, is a clear violation of the first commandment. When man learns that there truly is no other power than that of God, and lives in faithful obediance to the first commandment, then the error of believing that there is any other power will be seen as being invalid, and as that error is refuted, sin and evil will cease to have any claim of power also.
