This week we discussed God’s holiness which unfolds into two distinct categories: 1) God’s goodness and moral purity 2) the utter separateness and otherness of God. The Holiness of God is often used in Scripture to convey the immeasurable intensity of His presence. God’s presence is “dreadful” and “awful” according to Scripture and thus, Christians must not approach Him lightly. He is utterly Holy.
This week we discussed the omniscience of God. We saw that God knows all things including everything that has happened, everything that is happening, and everything that will happen. However, God’s omniscience extends beyond the indicative to the subjunctive mood; that is, God knows everything that could have and would happen if circumstances were different. This is known as God’s Middle Knowledge.
