God is Omniscient | Dr. Stephen Conley
Omniscience Defined and Described
- God is “all-knowing.” God’s knowledge includes all things past, present, and future, all things immediately, simultaneously, exhaustively, and eternally. God never learns anything since His knowledge never comes through experience or imagination, nor is it acquired by a process of reasoning or observation. God’s knowledge is completely exhaustive.
