Roots of the Faith - The Incommunicable Attributes of God: Omniscient - 2/8/23

INTRO

“The foundation of all true knowledge of God must be a clear mental apprehension of His perfections as revealed in Holy Scripture. An unknown God can neither be trusted, served, nor worshipped.” A.W. Pink


God is Omniscient

God knows all things. He fully knows (1) himself, his infinite knowledge encompassing his infinite being; (2) the past, which is as vivid to him as the present; (3) the present, even the most minute details of life; (4) the future, even the freewill decisions and actions of his creatures; (5) all actual things—that is, people and events that exist and happen; and (6) all possible things—that is, people and events that could possibly exist and happen, but never do. GREGG R. ALLISON, 50 CORE TRUTHS OF THE CHRISTIAN FAITH: A GUIDE TO UNDERSTANDING AND TEACHING THEOLOGY (GRAND RAPIDS, MI: BAKER BOOKS: A DIVISION OF BAKER PUBLISHING GROUP, 2018), 82.
