    Genesis 2:2 He rested on the seventh day from all the work he had undertaken.

    Why would an omnipotent god need to rest?

    Where does Genesis 2:2 say that God needed to rest?
    Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

    The creative work was done. God stopped creating.

    God was also modelling to humankind the need for rest from the work cycle.

    He wasn't tired.

    Oh I see, God wasn't tired, he was just modeling for human beings because otherwise they wouldn't know what to do when they get tired.

    Every heard of a workaholic, Jimmy? It's a real thing
    Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

    He wanted to try out that easy chair he created on day 6. And watch some football. Don't you think God deserves a vaycay?

    Your question is idiotic Jim.

    You don't ask any question with an honest desire to know the answer.

    This is why I rarely bother with you anymore.

    I rarely engage arguments here for the benefit of my opponent but rather for the sake of any honest seeker who might happen to be reading.
