*Omnibenevolence is defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as "unlimited or infinite benevolence". It is a technical term used in the academic literature on the philosophy of religion, often in the context of the problem of evil and in theodical responses, and even in such context, the phrases "perfect goodness" or "moral perfection" are often preferred.

+The term is patterned on, and often accompanied by, the terms "omniscience" and "omnipotence",
typically to refer to conceptions of an "all-good, all-knowing,
all-powerful" deity. Philosophers and theologians more commonly use
phrases like "perfectly good", or simply the term "benevolence". The
word "omnibenevolence" may be interpreted to mean perfectly just,
all-loving, fully merciful, or any number of other qualities, depending
on precisely how "good" is understood. As such, there is little
agreement over how an "omnibenevolent" being would behave.

+The idea of God's omnibenevolence in Christianity is based on Psalms
18:30, "As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried:
he is a buckler to all those that trust in him." It is also supported
by Ps.19:7, "The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the
testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple."

!!The philosophical justification stems from God's aseity: the
non-contingent, independence and self-sustained mode of existence that
theologians ascribe to God. For if He was not morally perfect, that is,
if God was merely a great being but nevertheless of finite benevolence,
then his existence would involve an element of contingency, because one
could always conceive of a being of greater benevolence.

"But know this first of all,
that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one's own interpretation,
for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by
the Holy Spirit spoke from God" (2 Peter 1:20-21)

"All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness" (2 Timothy 3:16)

"[T]he god of this world has
blinded the minds of the unbelieving, that they might not see the light
of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God" (2 Corinthians 4:4)

They are "futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart [is] darkened" (Romans 1:21)

They are "dead in [their]
trespasses and sins"; they walk "according to the course of this world,
according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is
now working in the sons of disobedience"; and they are "by nature
children of wrath" (Ephesians 2:1-3)

In a spirit of gentleness, correct those who deny Jesus' claims on their life (2 Timothy 2:24-26) and call them to repentance and the obedience of faith.

How can you determine the flavor of the pudding, if you havent even tasted it? Yet, how can you believe the bible is Gods word when you dont even KNOW its inerrant?(though both are twisted together as one wick, to be lit, so one may find His path and gain everlasting life in the Kingdom of God)
