What is God Like?
Pt 6 - An All Knowing God

Psalm 44:20-21 - What is frightening about a God who knows everything?
“That God knows each person through and through can be a cause of shaking fear to the man what has something to hide - some unforsaken sin, some secret crime committed against man or God.
