Gerhard Lohfink on God’s Omnipotence

“God is thus revealed as omnipotent precisely in the fact that God stakes everything on the intelligence, free will, and trust of human beings . . . God attains the goal desired because in this world joy in God’s story is stronger than all inertia and greed, so that this joy continually seizes people and gathers them into the people of God.”
– Gerhard Lohfink
