Knowledge, Foreknowledge, and the Gospel

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.
