In another thread there is a lot of speculations about how God makes choices since he has always known all things. Some conclude that God can't make real choices for this reason and such language is only anthropomorphic in nature. While I would agree that God's makes choices differently than we do, I am not so quick to dismiss the fact that God does indeed make choices. This brings us to the question of this thread. How does a infinite, omniscient God create something new? If time and matter has always been perfectly known to God how can time and matter ever be new to Him? Was their a first time for God to speak to a creature? If so, would that entail God experiencing or learning something new? If not, was there never really a beginning of time and matter? How can you reconcile these things? Wouldn't such speculations be chalked up to "His ways are higher than our ways?" and just take scripture for what it says instead of speculating as to what God can and cannot do based on our finite reasoning? What say you?
