Hello Aresman, I have addressed all these bogus points before. Please address my views on your points or discussion seems pointless. 1. Every choice is intentional. Yes, and we always choose what we desire at that moment in time, except for when we make mistaken choices like reaching to catch the ball, but missing it, was not a choice driven by desire, but by frailty. 2. Every choice is not a non-choice because we can alter our desire at any point in time, whether the greater evil or the greater good. 3. It is not necessary that God knows the future exhaustive, only that God has the capacity to know the future exhaustive. The Bible teaches that God has the capacity to choose not to know the future exhaustively. So if the Bible is our only authority, and not the doctrines of men, or the traditional views of men, then it is necessary God has the power to choose whatever pleases Him, which could be to remember no more, or test people to find out what their heart desires. (Not saying that is what God chose to do, because that would be unorthodox, but simply saying God has that capacity because all things are possible with God.) 4. It does not matter whether some Arminians are compatibilist, but as an observation I agree some Arminians think it is possible for God to know something beforehand, yet we make that choice, it is as if God only knew what we freely chose. 5. Next, you introduce the Theodicy issue, which I have also addressed many times in the past. God allows men to do evil because that is according to His purpose of creation. This does not make Him the author of that evil. OTOH, the calamity that God does cause, and we, i.e. those affected adversely, would call the calamity evil, does not make God’s actual calamity evil because in His eyes, the calamity is necessary for His purpose. 6. Yes God could have chosen not to create the capacity to choose evil in man, but that would not have fulfilled the purpose of God creating man. And He could have chosen not to allow the adverse consequences of evil choices, but again He did. We are not in a position to judge the decisions God makes according to His purpose, only to accept that if we understand His revealed decisions, they are perfect and just and never evil in His eyes. 7. Yes, we walk in the purview God allows us to walk, we make plans but God directs our feet. He can harden our hearts and remove our ability to choose to trust in Christ, but He also allows us, with our heart unhardened by the practice of sin or His intervention to trust in Christ. 8. No one is arguing in favor of Open Theism, but that everything is not predestined which is open theism to a limited degree. Try to stay focused on the actual issue. 9. The Theodice problem is not a mystery, the Bible explains it, but it is off topic, addressing what you think is the motive of explaining why God allows the evil consequences of mankind’s evil choices. But the motive for saying everything is not predestined is to make comprehensible the punishment God gives those who choose to sin. In summary, the motive for saying everything is not predestined is because that is my understanding of scripture, i.e. Jesus says things happen by chance. The rebuttal to nullify this scripture is that since God knows the future exhaustively everything is predestined, which puts a manmade doctrine, not supported by scripture, above scripture. As a Baptist who believes in scripture alone, I reject that argument.
