    How do Calvinists view Deut. 32:26-27?

    Deut. 32:26 I would have said, “I will cut them to pieces; I will wipe them from human memory,”
    Deut. 32:27 had I not feared provocation by the enemy, lest their adversaries should misunderstand, lest they should say, “Our hand is triumphant, it was not the LORD who did all this.”’

    Does God's foreknowledge of man's decisions figure into or determine God's actions?

    When I turn my son loose in his truck to go to school, work, or wherever I know he is going to speed at times. That knowledge does not negate the just discipline for his actions.

    No....
    1] this is a wrong usage of the word foreknowledge in the bible

    2]2._____ Although God knoweth whatsoever may or can come to pass, upon all supposed conditions, yet hath he not decreed anything, because he foresaw it as future, or as that which would come to pass upon such conditions.
    ( Acts 15:18; Romans 9:11, 13, 16, 18 )

    3] God does not need to learn something, or anything from His creatures

    4] this should be a common knowledge among all christians....God is perfect in all ways...lacking nothing...needing nothing from us...

    God knows all things from eternity, so He would have 'factored" in all things and have it all work together per His Will/plan and purposes!
