Joh 14:26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
John 14:26 states that God will send a helper to teach his people “all things”. The Greek is πάντα, the same word used in 1 John 3:20 for God “knows all things”. The phrase in John 14:26 mirrors a statement earlier in 1 John 2:20, in which man “knows all things” by virtue of an anointing by God.
Both statements, John 14:26 and 1 John 2:20, are talking about a general knowledge of spiritual secrets. They are not about being taught or knowing “omnisciently”. Yet a similar phrase, said concerning God is taken as the most popular verse to claim God’s omniscience, an active, internal, and eternal knowledge of all things. The forced theology is obvious.
