Belief in an existent future is a pagan belief, not a biblical belief. Support for the idea that God has chosen to be in deterministic control of everything is based on the belief of an existent future existing on the other side of the veil of time. Starting near the beginning, lets turn to Plato. He lived about 80 years, from about 428 BC to about 348 BC. In Plato's Phaedrus Dialogue, Plato using the voice of Socrates presents his pagan view of the Divine Knowledge of the gods. First, only knowledge of the truth matters, writers who express knowledge of the truth matter, but they cannot be called wise, that name belongs only to the gods. Men, on the other hand, may be called lovers of wisdom, or philosophers (lovers of knowledge.) In Plato's Timaeus Dialogue, Plato using the voice of Socrates presents the idea that the behavior of the physical can be observed by man, but only God has the knowledge and power to cause behavior. Man's knowledge is superficial; God's knowledge is exhaustive. In Plato's Parmedides Dialogue, Plato presents his idea of an existent future, rather than just a conception of the mind. Plato asserts that "ideas" exist apart from individuals, and our ideas (the concepts of our minds) simply resemble the "existent ideas." Only God possesses absolute knowledge of the "existent ideas". In Book X of the Laws, God must know even the small and insignificant stuff concerning individuals or else God would be negligent, due to inactivity or carelessness. The biblical idea that God could choose not to acquire or remember information concerning existent human beings escapes Plato's grasp of absolute truth. Plato laid the foundation of the concept of an existent future of which God possesses exhaustive knowledge. Rather than the future being simply a concept of the mind, Plato moves the concepts of the mind into a fictional metaphysical world known only by God. Therefore the belief of an existent future was born of Greek Philosophy and not the inspired word of God. Aristotle continued the development of the concept of God's exhaustive knowledge of the existent future. Aristotle studied under Plato and lived from about 384 BC to 322 BC. In Metaphysics Book 1, Aristotle endorsed the idea that only God possess knowledge of metaphysics, the world beyond the physical, because it is beyond the grasp of humans. In discussing the nature of the Divine, Book XII, Chapter 9, Aristotle accepts the view that God is infinite and the first cause of all the finite. God creates the seed maker, and then the seed maker creates the seed. Also in Book XII, Chapter 10, Aristotle challenges the correct view that the future comes into being as time moves from the past to the present, by saying, "What is the cause of becoming - no one tells us." As a proof of the existence of God, the first cause, his observation is valid, but as a proof for an existent future created by God before the beginning of time, invalid. In summary, Pagan Greek Philosophers established the idea of a metaphysical world existing outside the mind of men, and that this fictional construct of uninspired men was created by God, and that only God knows the metaphysical world exhaustively. On the other hand, scripture teaches that God brings the future into being; He makes it happen. He alters the future by intervening, by hardening hearts to cause the Gospel to be spread to the Gentiles. If we repent, He relents. If we are persistent in prayer, God gives us more of the Holy Spirit. The doctrine of Total Omniscience is pure paganism, inherent omniscience is pure revelation.
