The Omniscience of God

Systematic TheologyThis 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.

  1. I do not think that god claims to know everything that might possibly be known – to be allowed to say about himself in precisely this way that he is all knowing. This does not contradict the bible, because in practical terms the difference between a truly all knowing god and the god of the bible might not be obvious at all. I am open to other points of view – based on the bible.
