I received a great question from a reader using a number of Scripture verses to make the point that God is not omniscient. The suggestion was that God makes decisions and adjustments as events continue to unfold. Of course, this theological view holds great concern for those who believe the Bible is inerrant and has plotted the history of mankind from eternity past to eternity future, based on the wisdom of an all-knowing, all-powerful, sovereign God.
For God to be God and for man to accept Him as our Lord and, through Christ, our Savior, we need to be assured that He has the power, understanding, and authority to make the claims He does. The greatest of those claims is that Christ died on the cross for the sins of all those who trust Him. And, that He is coming again for His children. The Lord has written the Bible as a history lesson, a manual for our life on this earth, and a basis for our eternal faith. To believe the Bible is perfect in its original autographs necessitates faith in the Writer’s omniscience, omnipotence, and omnipresence.
