I was taught in Christianity classes in school that God is all-seeing and all-knowing. He can read your mind like an open book, and He knows everything about you.
I had thought this applied to all Gods; that they knew everything that went on in your mind.
This led to some confusing conversations with Loki.
I’d ask “why are you doing this?” and He would answer: “I thought that was what you preferred” – and I would be completely confused, because it wasn’t, and I thought He knew that.
Or He would ask things like: “I hope you don’t think I’m hanging around too much?” to which I would answer: “No, of course not! Quite the opposite!” – and again I would be confused, because I thought He knew that.
Then it began to dawn on me that He didn’t know everything that went on in my head. He knew what He had observed about me, and what I had told Him, but not every thought.
