Okay, I know this is *actually* a pretty deep and pretty unsettled theological question. Free will, predestiny and all that. But just more on a casual level -- I'm wondering lately if he ever looks at what the human race has come up with and shakes his head in wonder. I wonder if God knew the things we would do (good and bad) or if some of it surprises God.

What do people think?

Since God is all knowing I feel like He is not necessarily surprised with what we do. He knows what choices we will make before we even have the choice to make them. I'm sure He wishes we made better choices at times and maybe he is saddened by the outcomes of our choices, but I don't think He is suprised.

I agree with Noahsmum. Believing that God is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omnipotent....I agree that He knows everything all the time.
