This is a critical thinking and discussion forum hosted by the small groups department of Gateway City Church.
Freewill & Foreknowledge: Can freewill exist in a future that God already knows?
Freewill and Foreknowledge:
Can God know the future while we still have a choice in it?
(?) What is the definition of a freewill agent?
a) What constitutes human will (the answer to this question determines the answer to the next)? Is it free?
b) What constitutes God’s will? Is it free? Is it sovereign?
(?) Does God know the future?
a) If yes, how does He know it? (what is the nature of His knowledge, e.g., deterministic or otherwise?)
b) Does the nature of His foreknowledge have implications for the issue of human freewill?
<> Is “the future” anything more than a concept? i.e., does “the future” even exist?
a) If not, is there anything “there” for God to know?
b) Why is the answer to this question significant to the issue of Freewill and Foreknowledge?
(?) What does the Bible say about freewill?
a) How does the Arminian “controversy” relate to this topic?
b) If you believe you have any freewill, how do you choose to respond to God’s invitation to acknowledge Him?
