The popularity of a thing doesn’t make it true!

This phrase “What God cannot do does not exist” is false in the kingdom of God. It is not from Matthew 19:26 KJV or Mark 10:27 KJV. It is not the correct interpretation and right application of Matthew 19:26 KJV or Mark 10:27 KJV.

This popular slogan is unscriptural in the community of Christian believers in pure and sound doctrine.

“What God Cannot do does not exist” is unbiblical. It is an error controlled by the spirit of error – 1 John 4:4 KJV “We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.”

It is for the world of the unbelievers. It is their slogan.

The slogan is never for the genuine Christian believers. It does not come from the spirit of holiness – Romans 1:4 KJV “….the spirit of holiness….”

In Mark 10:27 KJV, the Bible says, “And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.” The impossibilities of men are easily possible with God.

The correct interpretation of this (Mark 10:27 KJV) is that anything, any situation, any circumstance that brings glory to God which is impossible with men, or anything, any situation, any circumstance, that will bring glory to God which is impossible with men, all is possible with God – Isaiah 43:7 KJV and John 11: 4, 40 KJV “Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory…. When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby…. Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?” Poverty exists but does not glorify God – death exists but does not glorify God!

“What God cannot do does not exist” is the slogan of the miracle seekers. Therefore, avoid these miracle seekers’ slogan. It is a product of the false doctrine of the prosperity gospel preachers/pastors.

Once again! “What God cannot do does not exist” is unscriptural. It is unbiblical. The popularity of a thing doesn’t make it true.

Even though, this slogan “What God cannot do does not exist” , you accept it for positive things in your mindset of positive thinking and if you pray amiss or not according to the will of God for the purpose of God for your life, you will never get the answer from God!

Critical question to ask on “What God cannot do does not exist”: Is God responsible for everything? Stealing, killing/ritual killing, destruction, accident, abortion, prostitution, disaster, calamity, bareness, violence/domestic violence, sickness, suicide, terrorism, banditry, rape, kidnapping, militancy, corruption, oppression, cultism,  poverty, ignorance,  lies, etc in fact, all types of infirmities, misfortunes, and personal disasters – evils? Not at all!

God is never responsible for any form of evil – John 10:10 KJV  “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy….” The thief here is Satan the devil. Satan the devil is responsible for anything evil (all manners of evil) in human world.

Scripturally, there are many things that God cannot do but they do exist. Even the scripture mentioned the phrase “God cannot” in the Bible –  James 1:13 KJV “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man.”

From the above quoted scripture (James 1:13 KJV), you can see the phrase “God cannot”. Therefore in the Bible, there are many things God cannot do but they evidently exist.

Now, we shall look together scripturally at some of the things that God cannot do but they do exist evidently in human world.


(1) God cannot lie:

Titus 1:2 KJV “……God, that cannot lie….”

This scripture (Titus 1:2 KJV) says God cannot lie. Lie does exist evidently in human world but it is impossible for God to lie – Hebrews 6:18 KJV  ”….it was impossible for God to lie…” Satan lies as well as human beings, most especially the politicians – John 8:44 KJV “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” As lie exists, is God responsible for it? Not all.  God is not a man that He should lie – Numbers 23:19 KJV “God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man….” Man does tell lies but God cannot tell a lie – Romans 3:4 KJV “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar..”

(2) God cannot change:

The only thing that is permanent and constant in life is change but God cannot change – Malachi 3:6 KJV and Hebrews 13:8 KJV “For I am the LORD, I change not….Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and for ever.”

(3) God cannot deny Himself:

Denial evidently exists. There are some who evidently say there is no God! The Bible call them fools – Psalms 14:1  “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.” The atheists evidently say there is no God. But whether people believe there is God or not – whether they deny the existence of God or not – that their claim neither change nor deny the existence of God because He (God) cannot deny Himself – even if you as a Christian is faithless, or any person believes not, God cannot deny Himself as He (God) is always faithful : 2 Timothy 2:13  KJV “If we believe not, yet he (God) abideth faithful: he (God) cannot deny himself.”

(4) God cannot be tempted with evil:

It is evident that everyone whether we like it or not, shall always be tempted with evil; but it is not from God. Temptation with evil does exist but never from God as He (God) cannot tempt anyone with evil – James 1:13 KJV “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man.” The thoughts of God towards us is always good, not of evil – Jeremiah 29:11 KJV  “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”

(5) God cannot send the sinners to Heaven

God cannot send the sinners to Heaven when they die without repentance – without the salvation of their souls: Revelation 21:8 KJV “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

(6) God cannot fail:

It is in human nature to disappoint and fail. That is, failure and disappointment exist as a common daily occurrence and experience but God cannot fail – Joshua 21:45  KJV “There failed not ought of any good thing which the LORD had spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass.”

(7) God cannot do wickedness!!! He cannot commit sin:

God cannot do wickedness. Wickedness is sin in the sight of God and therefore, God cannot commit sin – Habakkuk 1:13 KJV “Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity…” Immorality/wickedness exists everywhere in the society but think of moral attributes of God. God cannot commit sin because He is perfect, righteous and holy –Matthew 5:48 KJV  and 1 Peter 1:15-16 KJV “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect… But as he (God) which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.” No sin was found in Jesus Christ – Hebrews 4:15 KJV “For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.”

(8) God cannot die:

People die every day. If Jesus tarries and delays His second coming, everyone reading this article must have died in one hundred and fifty  (150 ) years time but God has eternal and immortal nature. Death evidently exists but God cannot die: 1 Timothy 1:17 KJV and 1 Timothy 6:16 KJV “Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen….  Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.”

(9) God cannot make a mistake:

We have human errors everywhere but He (God)  is error free. God makes no mistakes: Genesis 1:31  KJV “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good…” His perfection and greatness disallow mistakes. Since God is perfect, He cannot make mistakes. His perfection makes God error free – Psalms 18:30 KJV  “As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.”

(10) God cannot be deceived:

Deception exists but God cannot be deceived: Luke 12:2  KJV, Daniel 2:22 KJV and Psalms 139:12 KJV “For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known… He (God)!revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him….Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.”

(11) God cannot be mocked:

Mockery exists but God cannot be mocked: Galatians 6:7 KJV  “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”

(12)  God cannot be defeated and be put to shame:

Defeat that leads to shame exists but God cannot be defeated and be put to shame: Exodus 15:3  KJV “The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.” God cannot be defeated but we lose when we allow/ permit other gods to win, control and dominate in our lives. The reason why God cannot be defeated is because power is required to defeat Him but all power belongs to God – Psalms 62:11 KJV  and Matthew 28:18 KJV “God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God…. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.”
