    God does not merely know a greater quantity of facts than we, he knows all those facts in a greater quality as well.

    Is that what I hear you saying?

    How would one prove this? How do we know this?

    Exactly. I think the only way to prove this is by tackling the question of God's "Wholly Otherness", and the way I've seen it done is by showing that we never really partake of God's essence, but only as it is communicated to us through the relationship that Christ has with God.

    The best way I've understood this is that 1. Scripture is our starting point and therefore our preeminent source of information; therefore, 2. everything obtained from God's Word or from God-given faculties (reasoning, senses, etc.) is truth.

    Of course, we can misuse these faculties, but nonetheless, when properly utilized, these things are truth.
