      WHAT IF GOD WERE NOT ALL KNOWING?

One of the supreme traits of the Judean-Christian God is that He is “Omniscient,” that is, all knowing. Again, like God’s other traits, this is a trait that is difficult to wrap our minds around. Knowing all things, at all times, is a truly vast capability worthy of a great God.

            But what if God were not all knowing? What if He, somehow, were limited in His ability to keep track of all that there is to know in the universe and in the heavenly realms; about the past and the present; about human actions and thoughts? 

            A God limited in Knowledge would be difficult to conceive and be in total awe or fear of. God’s greatness is, in part, manifested by the fact that nothing, ever, escapes his all-seeing eyes. The grandness of His laws rest also on the fact that no transgression can ever go unnoticed, that all sin is recorded, and that consequences will invariably follow wrongdoing.

            If God were limited in knowledge, humans would have limited awe and respect for Him, and some might even be tempted to believe that their attitudes, thoughts and even some of their actions might somehow be hidden from Him.     

            The Scriptures tell us that the great God fills the heavens and the earth, (Jeremiah. 23: 24); knows all the stars of Heaven and “calleth them all by their names” (Psalms 147: 4). He has total awareness of the minutest detail and even knows the number of hair on our head (Matthew 10: 30).

            No human action can escape His gaze. For those who think they can, the Bible has a stern warning: “Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? And who knoweth us?” (Isaiah 29:15). In the same vein, Daniel assures us that “He revealeth the deep and secret things; He knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with Him” (Daniel 2: 20).

            God sees our actions and knows our every thought. He “searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts” (I Chronicles 28: 9). In the New Testament, the Apostle Peter tells us that, “God knows the hearts” (Acts 15:8). Furthermore, he adds that “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight; but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with whom we have to do” (Hebrews 4:13).

             God, therefore, has total knowledge of every particle in the universe. Every human action is naked before Him, and no thought or attitude can ever escape his awareness. He is, indeed, the all-knowing God.
