Now that, I understand. That's basically my own understanding. God is there all the time at all times. He knows what will happen, and just because He
knows what you will do, to day, tomorrow, 10 years from now, doesn't mean that you know. Essentially, God is not anchored in time, and we are. That
gives us a very different perspective than He has. And just because He knows what we will do and what will come to pass doesn't mean He makes us do
it or interferes with our conscious process of making our everyday choices in any way (unless of course He decides to speak to us as He does to His
He may know what will come to pass, how we will choose, but for us those choices are still freely made because our futures are not given to us to
know. We don't even know the future from prophecy although it gives us glimpses and hints.
But to imply that God has made our choices for us and that for some He has chosen to have us turn away from Him I think is the wrong way to put it.
Yes, He knows that many will turn away, and even though He could stop them from doing so, He won't. But that doesn't mean He actively made or will
make that choice for them like some grand puppet master.
