Stephen Beecroft favored us with:
I would be surprised if any man or woman can name something that God cannot do,
whether because of the limitations of "natural law" or anything else, that doesn't fall into this class of false-by-definition.
God cannot sin. If he did, he would cease to be God. He cannot create something out of nothing. He cannot annihilate something in the sense of causing it to altogether cease to exist in any form. He cannot force a man to heaven. He cannot cause mercy to rob justice. In short, he cannot violate any of the laws by which he is governed, which are the laws by which he became God, and the laws that we must keep if we would become Gods.

Are all of these "false-by-definition?" Maybe so.
