This article argues that a Christian notion of God's almighty agency in the present world should be grounded in the consideration of the Easter event if speculation is to be avoided. Consequently, this essay introduces a sharp distinction between God's almightiness and mere omnipotence, and suggests that, if the Christian faith leads us to confess God's almightiness, it also forbids us to confess it in just any way we like: confession of God's almightiness necessarily takes the shape of hope and cannot be expressed in a mere assertive way. This is the reason why it is necessarily problematic, not on the level of its content, but as far as the mode of its confession is concerned.
