Knowledge, Foreknowledge and the Gospel

Knowledge, Foreknowledge and the Gospel

Douglas Wilson

$15.99

Booklet
We may be baffled by all this, but God is the foundation of all reason and order, and the problem does not perplex Him. But a man attempting to determine what the everlasting God may or may not do in history as He inhabits eternity is like a June bug trying to do quantum physics. If God were to come down to explain, as Job wanted Him to, I can just imagine any one of us trying to follow the argument. What a hilarious thought experiment! After the first two premises, our brains would blow up.

- Publisher When we say, "God is an omniscient God," what does that really mean? Some deny this doctrine, arguing that since God has given us "free will," it must be impossible for Him to see and know all things. But as Doug Wilson points out, if we want to worship an ignorant God, then we will become an ignorant people. This essay works through key biblical texts which demonstrate God's all-seeing, all-knowing nature. As Wilson explains what they teach us about the Gospel and our salvation, it becomes clear that the doctrine of omniscience ends not in puppet-like slavery but in the freedom which comes from serving a God whose knowledge is complete.
