Lowering the Omniscience of God

ListenListen to Today’s Audio Goodie
(Have the Goodie read to you!)

In a little school a lad was given an assignment by his teacher. He grappled with the task of finding the solution. After hours of efforts in which the answer continued to elude his eager search, he gave up the attempt. The sum was beyond his ability to work it out, and so defeated, with his sponge he just removed the problem from his slate.

When our theology involves the possibility of man becoming an unanswerable riddle to Deity, and when annihilation suggests that God’s final action of human problems is their destruction, then we have lowered the thought of the omniscience of God to somewhat akin to a boyish baffled brain. The difference between the two is only of degree.
