If God knows our future choices, does that mean we’re “predestined” to act a certain way? or even controlled?
This question has been pondered by many. Some argue that “free-will” is only possible if our choices are hidden from the almighty. They quote Gen 6:6 ‘And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart’, and argue that this scripture as well as others, prove God as “reactive”, therefore caught unaware.
However, others believe that God knows everything, including our future choices without necessarily interfering with our free will. These say “God is not bound by time and space, so he doesn’t experience time-events in a chronological way like we do”. Verses like Gen 1:1 show God as beyond time and space, and Mat 19:26 shows God’s awesome ability to do the impossible, ‘with God all things are possible.
…What do you think? How does God provide free-will?
