What doesn't God know? - The Whole Church Podcast

Episode 205

What doesn't God know?

Dr Thomas Oord, author of "The Death of Omnipotence and Birth of Amipotence", joins us again to discuss the omniscience of God. Joshua Noel asks Dr Oord about the differences of omnipotence and omniscience. They discuss their views of what God can and cannot know, then get into the nature of time and practical takeaways of this doctrine.


What does the Bible mean by omnipotence? What is the problem with omnipotence? What is the theory of omnipotence? What is the paradox of God's omnipotence? What it means to be omniscience? What is the difference between omnipotent and omniscience? What are the 3 omnis of God? What is God's relationship with time? What is God's understanding of time? What does God say about the concept of time?


In this episode, we will:

  • Explore the nature of God's knowledge
  • Compare omniscience and omnipotence
  • Deconstruct the construct of time
  • Discuss the implications of God's inability to know the future
  • Explore Biblical support for and against God knowing the future

Offering Plate

We may not be huge fans of the pressure that goes along with a literal offering plate, but we do hope you will consider giving to our ministry so we can afford to continue our work to educate and unite the Church!
