God is not the cause of mans sin

God is not the cause of man's lust

James 1:13 (KJV 1900)
13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:

1 Corinthians 10:13 (KJV 1900)
13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

1 John 2:16 (KJV 1900)
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

Jeremiah 19:5 (ESV)
5 and have built the high places of Baal to burn their sons in the fire as burnt offerings to Baal, which I did not command or decree, nor did it come into my mind—

God is still not the cause of mans lusts

God is still not the cause of man's sinful thoughts

God is still not the cause of man's sinful deeds

James 1:13–15 (KJV 1900)
13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

1 Corinthians 10:13 (KJV 1900)

No. God knows all

The question was not, "DOES God know all".

The question was, "HOW does God know what He foreknows?"

Why are you DODGING the question?

He does not learn from observation he knows for he is God and omniscient

"He knows for he is God and omniscient".

Being "omniscient" simply means He "knows everything".

Once again, the question was, "HOW does God know?"

Why do you keep DODGING this question?

What part of he is God and omniscient is beyond your understanding

What part of he is God and omniscient is beyond your understanding

The part where we asked you "HOW", and you only answer "WHAT".
And being condescending while dodging the question is not a good look for you.

All you're saying is, "He knows everything because He knows everything".
And that's a worthless tautology which conveys no useful meaning.

Omniscient

hello

Do you deny God is omniscient ?

Do you really think anyone is capable of explaining God

The bible affirms his omniscience

You can deny it if you like I won't

How does God know what He knows? If not observation then what?
How many times are you going to ask the same question ?

He is omniscient and knows all things

It is not necessary to know how he does it

only to believe that the scripture teaches it

are you denying it ?

Do you deny God is omniscient ?

Of course not.

But that's not an answer to HOW God is omniscient.

Do you not understand the meaning not the word, "How"?

Do you really think anyone is capable of explaining God

Well, you clearly are incapable of explaining God.

The bible affirms his omniscience

That's not in dispute.

You can deny it if you like I won't

I'm not denying it at all.

Do you imagine man capable of explaining God ?

If so have at it as you stated you do not deny his omniscience

Me I will just say God is too great to be explained by our limited brain
