Does God know absolutely everything?

Question asked by: mrquestion

Asked on: 02 Apr 2008

God knows absolutely everything there is to know according to traditional Christian belief, yes.

This is called being omniscient, literally knowing everything (from the Latin roots of all and knowledge).

Many people question whether this is possible, but everything is possible for God.

Since the Christian God is a God of prophecy and purpose He can know everything if he choses to do so.The question arises "How does he exercise his knowledge? To begin with, we are assured that all of God’s ways are truthful, righteous, and loving. Consider the case of Adam and Eve. God could certainly forsee what they would do after He put them in the Garden and told them the rules i.e not eating of the one tree. Being a God of love He would not knowingly and cruelly predetermine that rebellion—with all its sad consequences—should take place. God chose not to forsee the future in that case. This exapmple shows that he can know a thing if He chooses to or He can wait and see how thing unfold.

God knows everything that is knowable. That is to say whatever is possible to know he must by necessity know. God is infinite in whatever attributes he has, so if he has knowledge (which he must since we were created with knowledge) he will have infinite knowledge. When I say that he knows everything that is knowable, it means there are things that are impossible (even for an all knowing God) to know. For example, it is impossible to know how to make a square circle. For a more detailed explanation please see:http://darcylbell.blogspot.com/2010/02/who-made-god-arguement-for-existance-of.html
