Quora Answer: Does God Make Mistakes?

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

The following is my answer to a Quora question: “Does God make mistakes? 

A God that is Omnipotent and Omniscient cannot make mistakes.  Mistakes are caused by lack of knowledge or a lack of control of a situation.  An Omnipotent God does not lack control and an Omniscient God does not lack knowledge, so that precludes God making mistakes.  He is Perfect.  Attributing a mistake to God is a form of anthropomorphism, and is predicated on the lack of understanding of what a “mistake” is and the Divine Nature.
