THE DANGERS OF M.G.T. (MORAL GOVERNMENT THEOLOGY): PART 6
DOCTRINE: The Omniscience or the All-Knowing and Foreknowledge of God
MGT says that God's foreknowledge is limited in the area of man's free decisions. In other words M.G.T. say that God knows only after man has decided and acted on something. This means God is not in the future seeing our actions but is a step behind man in the present.
MGT says that many of the things God predicted never came true. They would say that God can lie and that His predictions are noting more than when predicts, a hit or miss situation.
However, the Scriptures say that God's understanding is infinite (Ps. 147:5). The Scriptures say that what God predicts is true and amen and has or will come true.
Deuteronomy 18:22 ESV when a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the word does not come to pass or come true, that is a word that the LORD has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously. You need not be afraid of him.
Isaiah 40:21-23 ESV Do you not know? Do you not hear? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth? (22) It is he who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to dwell in; (23) who brings princes to nothing, and makes the rulers of the earth as emptiness.
Numbers 23:21 ESV He has not beheld misfortune in Jacob, nor has he seen trouble in Israel. The LORD their God is with them, and the shout of a king is among them.
