"If God is not omniscient then He is not God." "The Sovereignty of God is the most important aspect of who He is." Statements like these are often heard on sites like this, but rarely do you here people arguing in defense of God's holiness even though it is the most used divine attribute in the bible. "Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God almighty." Holiness refers to God purity and separateness from that which is evil, yet it appears that some doctrinal systems are willing to sacrifice this aspect of Divine Holiness to avoid appealing to mystery in regard to logical dilemma created by this question: "If God fully knew every aspect of what he would create and chooses to create it anyway, then hasn't he predestined it to be?" 1. Some answer this question with an emphatic "yes," despite the implications regarding God's holiness. The works of Jeffery Dahmer's heinous sins were just as 'predetermined' as the works of Jesus Christ under this system of thought. So, the line between that which God does and his creation does is blurred if not completely lost. (Determinism) 2. Some answer this question with an emphatic "yes," and so deny that God really knows everything so as to deal with this issue and defend His holiness. (Open Theology) 3. Others appeal to mystery and admit up front that God's ways are higher than ours and such things are simply beyond our comprehension. They understand that God knows things differently than men would come to know them; God makes choices differently than we do; God is infinite and eternal whereas we are bound by the linear mindset of causality and reason. Thus, they wouldn't attempt to answer such a question because in doing so they would be admitting such matters were in full view and able to be sufficiently answered and understood. Instead they maintain the revealed truth of all God's attributes; including but not limited to His sovereignty, holiness and omniscience, without drawing unfounded and unbiblical conclusions.
