The Wisdom of God: By Thomas Whittemore; Edited, Expanded, and Narrated by Daniel Sheridan – Audio Version Below
God is WISE. A wise Creator would never bring beings into existence and then make that existence a curse by making eternal suffering the end of that existence. God foresaw all the consequences of our creation when he made us. He knew fully what the result would be to each individual. Is it possible that infinite goodness could breathe life into unoffending dust when it was clearly foreseen that endless evil would ensue? This is impossible! God Must have created ONLY TO BLESS. “LOVE WORKETH NO ILL.”
The wisdom of God, according to James 3:17, is “full of mercy” and “without partiality.” Let’s look at these.
First: “Full of mercy.” Adam Clarke says it means “ready to pass by a transgression, and to grant forgiveness to those who offend; and PERFORMING EVERY POSSIBLE ACT OF KINDNESS.” Surely, a God of infinite power and skill, who “performs every possible act of kindness,” will save his fallen creatures from their sins. Webster says mercy is “That benevolence, mildness or tenderness of heart which disposes a person to overlook injuries, or to treat an offender better than he deserves; the disposition that tempers justice, and induces an injured person to forgive trespasses and injuries, and to forbear punishment, or inflict less than law or justice will warrant…It implies benevolence, tenderness, mildness, pity or compassion, and clemency, but exercised only towards offenders. Mercy is a distinguishing attribute of the Supreme Being.”
Second: “Without partiality.” This means without making a difference. Webster says, “Inclination to favor one party or one side of a question more than the other; an undue bias of mind towards one party or side, which is apt to warp the judgment. Partiality springs from the will and affections, rather than from a love of truth and justice.” God is no respecter of persons. He is kind to all men and he will perform every “possible act of kindness” to all men.
The wisdom of God tells us that God is the Savior of All Mankind! Jesus Christ is a Successful Savior.
