“Belief that there is an omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient Creative Life Force, whose nature is love, the source of all good, means everything must be in Divine Order.” Since we know the lower-self is what we call “evil,” then all the workings of the lower-self is in Divine Order. All evil and hatred is in Divine Order. All the workings of societies are in Divine Order, including all manipulations, discriminations and violations of the Rights of Creation. Can the presence and allowance of pain and suffering be Divine and the Creator also be all-knowing (omniscient)?
Does everything being in Divine Order mean the Creator is all-knowing, all the time, in every way, about everything?
If The Creator Is All-Knowing1. Free-will could be an illusion.
An all-knowing Creator would know my choices, thoughts and actions before, during and after I knew them and carried them out. This same Creator would know everyone's choices and actions before, during and after happening. This same Creator would know all the actions of everything in Creation. Knowing all this, the Creator would know everything that was going to happen in advance, during and after. This would be complete perfect understanding. There would be nothing the Creator did not understand under any circumstance at any time. The Creator would understand all possible combinations of genetic potential and their influences on all other possible combinations. The Creator would understand all scenarios over all generations of every species and all their interactions. Because the Creator is both all-powerful and all-knowing, the Creator would only have to imagine Creation in the mind before actually creating Creation. Yet, this same Creator has created Creation knowing all this 'evil' would happen. This does not seem to leave much room for free-will because the Creator was the one who created all my potential and created all the conditions that influenced my choice. The Creator knew everything I would do. A Creator who knows everything, sets everything up and passes out all the abilities has left me with no choice. I become an actor in a play. If the Creator changed the conditions, I would change my choice because the combination of influences I encounter would be different. All this means my choice is guaranteed based on a given set and combination of conditions that have played themselves out up to the moment of “every choice,” thus guaranteeing specific choices and guaranteeing free-will is an illusion. 2. If the Creator has all ability and still creates Creation with the conditions that exist in the Universe, then the degree and duration of imbalance in the world must be necessary in order to create the optimal conditions for the Creator to stay alive. 3. If the Creator has this kind of ability, then why not create the conditions for lasting perfection without need for cycles and degrees of imperfection? Perhaps the Creator is not the only Creator. Perhaps the Creator is not the Supreme Creator. Once good and evil have been experienced and known, why is there a need for this cycle to repeat? Must there always be constant reminders of evil? Must the lower-self always exist? Even an evolved Creator who has new genetic potential should be able to foresee and understand the outcomes of multiple iterations of Creation, each having new levels of genetic potential. 4. If the Creator is all-everything (all-powerful (omnipotent), all-seeing (omnivision), all-present (omnipresent) and all-knowing (omniscient), then it seems unlikely the Creator is subject to the influences of another Creator. This then means an all-everything Creator should be able to create perfection and have it remain perfect for eternity without the need for cycles of imperfection. An all-everything Creator should be able to imagine and visualize Creation scenarios and gain understanding without actually having to create Creation and have Creation go through the joy and pain. 5. If free-will is an illusion, then predetermination and predestination become more the reality. Sin and responsibility become questionable. 6. If the Creator is all-knowing there is no need to ask in prayer or for the Creator to answer. What is going to happen is going to happen and the Creator already knows it, thus has either already answered my prayer or decided whether or not it will be answered before I ask.
If The Creator Is Not All-Knowing7. I am presupposing: (a) A key to understanding the Creator is to know self. (b)The purpose of Creation is to provide understanding to the Creator, so the Creator is also trying to know self. (c) The process of knowing self involves solving problems of understanding, which until solved, favors the lower-self use of genetic potential, (d) I am the Creator having a divine experience. (e) As above, so below. 8. Cardinal Principle #8 states, “Life is about lessons leading to the achievement of a greater and higher good.” If what I'm learning leads to a greater good, then the Creator must not know what I'm learning until I learn it. The Creator must need me to learn in order to contribute to the greater good. An all-knowing Creator would understand enough to create a greater good without having to wait on me. 9. If I am the Creator and I don't know then the Creator is not all-knowing. 10. If humans below need to learn, the Creator above needs to know. 11. The Creator needs Creation in order to understand self. If not, what is the purpose of Creation if the Creator already knows everything that will ever happen?
Summary(a) It is more likely the Creator is not all-knowing all the time, in every way, about everything.
(b) The Creator is all-knowing in terms of the genetic potential for things to happen.
(c) The Creator is not all-knowing in terms of the whos, whats, wheres, whens and hows of how things will play out.
(d) In other words, the Creator is all-knowing in terms of the potential energy of spirit but is not all-knowing when it becomes kinetic energy of spirit. The Creator does not know in advance all the ways in which spirit in motion in countless combinations and interactions will manifest itself. Thus the Creator does not know what everything in Creation is going to do. This leaves free-will and responsibility intact. It makes predetermination and predestination less immediately likely in the short-term portion of our journey. Since we are destined to return to oneness with the Creator this portion of predetermination and predestination remains intact.
(e) The Creator is not all-knowing in advance but is all-knowing after things have happened because spirit is everywhere and in all things. (f) The Creator is not all-knowing as things happen because just as it takes time for portions of the body to become aware of a virus in the body, it takes time for an event in the Universe to travel through the notification network and register across all dimensions. This understanding is reached in conjunction with understandings from the “Wheel Of Heaven” that states it takes time for spiritual energy to move between the Above and the Below. (g) The all-knowing ability of the Creator does improve as more events take place and more understanding is gained.
The Creator is able to calculate probabilities and narrow down the whos, whats, wheres, whens and hows. Thus, as spirit moves the Creator is able to calculate probabilities with more precision and less uncertainty and able to predict the outcome of influences. This also allows the Creator to make adjustments “on the fly” as necessary without throwing off the momentum towards optimization. (h) If there is a difference between knowing and understanding, then it is possible for the Creator to be all-knowing but not all-understanding. This would change some of the above and more information would be needed.
