If man is truly free, he can do whatever he chooses, including when this is opposed to God's will (e.g. sinning, blaspheming etc.). But if God is all-powerful, nothing can oppose His will: everything that happens happens according to His will. So we can't support, as monotheistic religions do, the idea that "all is omnipotent" and the idea that "man is free" (and therefore will be "judged" for his actions).
