Can God forget? If He does forget, what does He forget? Is His forgetfulness the result of some divine amnesia or alhezimers?
Here is the short skinny about this topic: God does forget; however, His forgetfulness is a product of His choosing rather than a product of divine disease.
My Grandpa Casey suffered from a disease he did not choose. The results of the disease were not of his choosing either.
God’s forgetfulness is not like that at all. God’s forgetfulness is a concious choice! The results of God choosing to forget equals forever forgotten! In fact, it equals forever . . . forgiven!!
Now the theology of forgotten is this: God really does not forget; He simply chooses to NOT REMEMBER! How would my relationships change if I chose not to remember other people’s actions toward me? I believe such an ability is the tipping point of Grace!
