A perfect being cannot beget imperfection. The Christian God, is not perfect. Though maybe it was his intention all along to create evil (Isaiah 45:7), and make us all sinners. He does after all, seem to enjoy having given Satan the reigns to this world. He plays his part too, by hardening hearts, sending lying spirits, etc. So either is is not perfect. Or he is the perfect psychopath.
why do you think its impossible for free will to exist with an omnipotent and omniscient being?
You make assertions without giving any reason to believe those assertions are true.
And how is my correction wrong? Are you denying that amount of gravity something has is based on a proportional to its mass and the distance between it and another object?
Are you saying that If a ball is close enough to earth, then gravity wont pull it toward the earth?
I am however a programmer and logic is something that we excel at.

In the premise following God is defined as the greatest possible being.
Premise 1: If God exist then God existence is necessary.
Premise 2: It is possible that God exist.
Premise 3: If it is possible for God to exist then God exist in some possible worlds.
Premise 4: If God exist in some possible worlds, then God exist in all possible worlds.
Premise 5: If God exist in all possible worlds, then God exist in the actual world.
Premise 6: If God exist in the actual world, then God exist.
Now its important to realize that after premise 2 the rest of the premises follow modal logic meaning if the first 2 premises are true then 3-6 logically follow. Anyways enjoy.
