    Does God foreknow everything? If so does He not foreknow His own formed intents as well? If He foreknows them, is not God bound to the same system of necessity as the Calvinists try and assert those that are saved and those that are damned are part of? Can anything happen differently that what an Omnipotent all knowing God foreknows will happen, including the end of His own foreknown intents?

    Why is not the system of necessity embrassed by those holding to the system known the world over as Calvinisim, characterized by the follow changes made to Genesis 1? “ In the beginning necessity created the heaven and the earth.” Maybe there are some Calvinists believe that God does not know the outcome of His own intents and is not under any system of necessity. Prove it, is my response. Prove it in the same way as you try to prove that man is bound to necessity due to the fact that God foreknows the end of our formed intents.

    Who or what necessitates God? Why should not be the cry and prayer from our lips be “All hail necessity!?” Let the debate roll. :type:

    When one plays marbles with necessity, by the rules of necessity they shall be held in check.
