It's a 20 marker on Mackie's extract in the Edexcel anthology for a level.
I'm really quite stuck on how to actually pin-point the answer in a critical way.
Q: ANALYSE THE IMPLICATIONS FOR BELIEFS ABOUT GOD'S OMNIPOTENCE
I've discussed the inconsistent triad and paradox of omnipotence so far... stuck!!
Thank you

I don't study Edexcel Religious Studies. However, I will offer some suggestions. As well as the problem of evil, which you have mentioned, maybe you could also mention the paradox of the stone. You can also ask whether God can do the logically impossible e.g. make a square circle. It seems obvious that it is not possible to do that but if God is omnipotent perhaps he can.

Hope this helps.
