The Concepts Of Omniscience by Pastor Melissa Scott

Pastor Melissa Scott teaches from the Bible: Many are called, few are chosen.

But what are the many? How many are the many? Are the many one trillion? Is that the many? And the few are five? Or the few five million?

We don’t know so I don’t want to try and define God. I don’t want to try and get into meddling in areas that too many people already meddled in.

I’ve got boxes of books, boxes. Boxes and boxes and boxes of these very people including those Luther and Erasmus debates, the Calvin and Armenian debates. I’ve got Augustine’s letters here. I’ve got everybody under the sun in my library.

Now, I tell you this because there has to be some theological footing. The concepts of omniscience, omnipotence and omnipresence; those are the concepts that came out of the German idealist realm with some very mutually contradictive ideas about things. Now, I don’t want to tread and say, “I’m going to take a position.” I already know what the position is: God said it.  And, at the same time, the same God who spoke and gave His word can turn around and say, “Hey, that derelict over there or maybe that lady with the bun who’s pretended to be so good but she’s really a rotten egg underneath; I’m going to save that woman.” How do we know?

This is the danger of the world we live in.  The world of we play God, because we assume to know what God wants and who He’s going to save..
