From omni- (“all”) + benevolent (“good-willed”). This may be a recent creation, extrapolating the contextual meanings of omniscient (“all-knowing”) and omnipotent (“all-powerful”) to describe, in a consistent manner, this third divine quality.
omnibenevolent (not comparable)
- All-loving, or infinitely good, usually in reference to a deity or supernatural being, for example, God.
- The omnibenevolent God, by definition, was unable to withhold forgiveness from his people.
- Its use is often with regards to the divine triad, whereby a deity is described to be simultaneously omniscient, omnipotent and omnibenevolent. This triad is used especially with the Christian god, Yahweh.
