Dave -

For some reason your message isn't showing up here. Anyway, the classical meaning of the words translated "Almighty" in the creeds (Greek pantokrator or Latin omnipotens) does not have to do with what God _could_ do but with what God _does_. I.e., they mean that God in fact does all things that take place in the world, er directly or indirectly. This does have some implications for what God could do but the that isn't the basic meaning of the words.

Shalom,
George
