“[God] knows everything past, [even] things a thousand years ago. [He] also [knows] everything to come [even] a thousand years to come. [He knows] all the men that will be, [and] all that
they will do, say, or think. This is more than all the rest: he perfectly knows himself. God is so
great that we can’t know but little of him.”
-Jonathan Edwards, Sermons and Discourses, 1743-1758.
