Do you believe God is aware of the problems and sometimes painful conditions in today's world? Some speculate that if He knew about them, He would surely do something, and therefore cannot be omniscient.
Instead of learning about God, then trusting and obeying, some attempt to compare God's reasoning, powers, and intelligence to their own, then decide how much ability and knowledge they will assign Him.
This trend is becoming more common than one might think. Just a few searches on the Internet will show that this is true.
Somehow the skeptics can't seem to accept or grasp that God is the Great All-Knowing, "I AM."
One can understand how those who worship the false gods can reach that conclusion, but it is not true for our living all-knowing God.
God welcomes honest questions, and I don't believe most intend any harm, but without realizing it is an act of futility, are simply trying to figure things out by their own abilities.
However, nowhere does Scripture suggest that we are to doubt His ability and knowledge, in fact, just the opposite; to ask such questions only tends to prove a lack of knowledge about Him.
A Bible teacher friend of mine recently said to his class, "some in the Church doubt the omniscience of God," then asked, "do you believe God is all-knowing?"
Some of the class didn't have any idea; others thought there might be some things God does not know, and a few were sure He has all knowledge.
"I believe He is omniscient and can know anything He chooses to know."
I wonder how anyone can have the biblical concept of God and yet question His abilities. Is it not a pathetic lack of understanding to question the knowledge of the One who spoke the earth and entire universe into existence?
God created humanity after His likeness and gave them a spirit, soul, mind, and intelligent speech, and later, gave His life to make it possible for them to have eternal life.
Scripture tells us that God is beyond finding out and that His ways are above our ways. Why waste time on things we don't understand and are beyond our ability to find out?
Either He is who He says, or He is nothing. We must believe all of Scripture of none of it.
“Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!” (Rom 11:33).
James 1:5 tells us: “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God.”
God is the source of wisdom and knowledge. How foolish to question His abilities.
There are deep Bible mysteries, but they are not to be exploited in ignorance and misconception as some do.
The secrets of God should be appreciated as a part of His superiority over humanity, knowing, that His ways are higher than our ways and beyond the ability of humans to understand.
It is spiritually unhealthy to question God at any level, and Christians should not accept unproven ideas and theories. We are to find our answers in God's Word, not unlearned spiritually confused opinions
Even though many may simply be attempting to find answers by their own abilities, there are some who viciously try to discredit God and His Word in any way they can.
It is best to stay away from anyone who is continually trying to find something wrong with God and His Word. Following them can only lead to confusion and pain.
No matter where the information comes from, look up the answers in Scripture and read them with your own eyes. Then you won't need to take anyone's opinion, and the Truth will remain indelibly etched in your heart and mind.
God is beyond our understanding. He has unlimited power, authority, infinite knowledge, and is not limited by time or space.
We did not create God; He created us. We are not capable of deciding what He either knows or doesn't know. Rather than challenging Him on matters beyond our ability we should search and believe the Bible, and trust and obey.
Accept only His Word as the final authority; then allow His Promises to come alive in your life. He is the One who offers infinite wisdom, joy, hope, and Everlasting life.
