Does God Know Everything?
As long as I remember people have told me that God knows everything, every event that’s ever going to happen in your life along with every thought you’ll ever think. This idea makes God the ultimate dispassionate voyeur knowing everything and for the most part just watching.
What if this however is not the case at all and people just made this stuff up about God? If ideas and thoughts don’t exist until they are actually conceived and therefore not a thing that can be known and that includes believe it or not by God? What if any events based on those ideas and thoughts also can’t be known before they are conceived and then acted upon.
This for me doesn’t take away from God at all and in fact makes God far more involved in the moment, rather then some being outside of time. Or worse yet already having seen the future, God has already “been there and done that” no-thing original. Who comes up with this stuff about God anyway it all sounds so Omni like though doesn’t it?
Think about it why isn’t it good enough that God knows your thoughts as you think them and not before. If God is Omni-Present isn’t good enough to know you all your life and therefore be pretty darn sure which direction you will take? I mean isn’t it enough for God to foreknow all God will do, without having to pre-know everyone else’s thoughts before they are actually conceived?
How about a God who loves originality and has built originality into the creation, with all the creative potential in it. Doesn’t the universe make far more sense this way not to mention our lives this way? This makes prayer, worship as well as meditation far more honest and genuine. God actually listening and paying attention what a concept, this is a God I can actually have a conversation with as well as a Love relationship.
