God and Knowledge

‎”God does not need to look beyond himself for additions to his knowledge. Then what about God’s knowledge of the facts of the created world, of the things that exist besides himself? As Human Beings we must know or interpret the facts after we have looked at the facts, after they are there and perhaps after they have operated for some time. In the case of God, on the other hand, God’s knowledge of the facts comes first. God knows or interprets the facts before they are facts. It is God’s plan or his comprehensive interpretation of the facts that make the facts what they are.” -Cornelius Van Til, The Defense of The Faith, Page 32
