That doesn't mean he cannot know all things at all times. It just means he chooses what he sees and not sees. And does not focus his attention on everything at once if he doesn't want to.


True it doesn't mean he "cannot" know all things at all times.
It does however mean that he doesn't.



Correct. And that is in line with a God of love. For he give us, humankind, and of course the angels, freewill.

It would be unkind of God to foreknow what would be our outcome. Rather he tells us that we have a choice. To do what is good and live, or to do bad and die. But he does not force us, or know what happens before it does. He allows us to choose to do what is right or wrong if he so chooses to show us what it is.

He knows there are many people who have lived who never knew right from wrong. That is the main point of the story of Jonah.

God's knowledge will always beat yours or mine. But it is always just and merciful.

Isn't that a contradiction there?

You agree that god has the potential for all knowledge but not the actual knowledge.
My knowledge of certain areas could potentially be greater than gods.

Of course if we're playing by your rules that's only because god doesn't want to know.
But whether he wants to know or not is irrelevant, there's a clear opening to have greater knowledge than god on the things he isn't interested in.

No. You're not thinking expansive enough.

God made the universe and all things in it.

You for one second think he doesn't know what he's doing? We're not playing by my rules.

Your right, I'm just trying to stick to the ideas you presented.
Unless you are the mouthpiece for god I will class that as your rules.

Perhaps you have been mislead on gods rules.
Perhaps it is crucial for gods plan that you are mislead.

One of the main teachings of Jonah. It was written long before I was born.

Check out the link in the OP. It's a good movie.

OK, I checked it out a bit, I flipped through it.

It is not a good movie.
Bad acting, bad writing, poor costumes, unconvincing beards, footage from shutterstock.

Not even 1 car chase.

You belie yourself.

It's basically word for word from the book of Jonah.
