Creating a Learning Network for Kingdom Builders!
I don't understand it either. How could God be shocked and omniscient? Obviously he wasn't too happy with the results of his creation when he witnessed the wickedness of humanity before the flood. If one is not happy with the results of something you design--be it a building or an idea--that means you did not know how it would turn out before you put it into practice, since we don't necessarily set out to make ourselves unhappy. This is our every day life as humans because we are not omniscient and we require experimentation in order to arrive at working designs. Do you follow me?
So if God was appalled by the wickedness of humanity in Genesis chapter 6, that implies that he didn't necessarily set out to make us wicked. Therefore, he is not omniscient. I'm not saying this is what I want to believe or that I am totally attached to this idea. It might be a bad design. It's just a logical conclusion that we should consider and think of a better way to answer than throwing rote scripture around. Thanks,
