    Sometimes, in small quantities. Igneous rocks have very little; sedimentary rocks such as limestone can have a significant percentage.

    It can contain moisture, yes. Usually in very small amount though. Typically, the pressure and heat involved will eliminate all water, but once it is formed, it is not impossible for water to seep into the void and be trapped there.

    The water isn't in the rock structure themselves but in cracks and joints within the rocks

    That's why you never put a rock, in a campfire. Water inside boils, produces steam then pressure, boom , like a grenade.

    Sure. It is called water of crystallization to make hydrated compounds. Very common.

    God has nothing to do with water in rocks.
