This topic has shown up in several different topics on this C/A forum, and there have been no definitive responses. Though the topic has little to do with either Calvinism or Arminianism, I find it more here then in the other forums. So, here's some questions: 1. Does God know every single action that each individual human will ever do in a lifetime, thus God decides "before the foundation of the world" what each man can do, will do, and does do, thus determining each man's destiny before he created man? 2. Alternatively, Does God Provide a bandwidth (environment) of latitude in which each man has freewill to chose his own actions, beliefs and destiny? 3. If God knows, for what reason does he permit us to sin against him, and to do harm to others? 4. And If God's stated desire that none should perish is true of God, then if he knows, why doesn't he direct each man to make the right choices, and why is finite man, in this natural lifetime, able to withstand the power of infinite God? That's much to discuss, so please keep to the topic of 'God Knows'!
