A discussion on another blog got me to wondering about something I’ve never considered before … exactly where did the beliefs that God is omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent originate?
I think most everyone, both within and without the religious community, would agree these qualities are synonymous with God … yet I’m quite sure the words aren’t used anywhere in the bible.
Certainly theologians would say there are INDICATIONS of these attributes within the scriptures, but that doesn’t explain where the use of these words originated … and by whom?
P.S. At the above-referenced blog, some feel that in order for humans to have free will, God cannot be omniscient. An interesting thought …
