God cannot be omnipresent. The modern church believes that God is everywhere and there is no place where God is not. David supported this teaching when he said,
“(Psa 139:7) Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence?
(Psa 139:8) If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!”
(NOTE: The whole chapter is worthy of your time and meditation!)
Yet, the modern church also believes that eternal conscious torment in hell is away from God’s presence. They say, as I did for many years, that hell is eternal separation from God. How can this be? This is an oxymoron. The term oxymoron is an oxymoron (composed of two words meaning sharp and dull, implied that one thing is both sharp and dull at the same time). So, my question to the modern church is this; how can God be omnipresent yet be eternally separate from hell? Is there anything God created outside His presence and control? If you wrestle with these things let me assure you that God is not a liar, nor is there anything He created outside His presence nor is the modern concept of hell as eternal separation from God true. It is false and that itself should give you hope, and the knowledge that God is not a monster but a lover of His creation who only has the best in store for it (them).
