Howdy there stuartcr;
Yes...God knew what I was going to do long before I did!
It’s all about that free will thingie He gave it to all of us...it was my own decision to accept Jesus as my Personal Lord & Savior.
The Holy Spirit will gently tug you to come to God, but He won’t force you.
I’m curious about something. When I talk about God knowing what we will do, and us not being able to do anything other than what He knows we will do, I’m constantly reminded of freewill. I believe that, for whatever reason, God creates people knowing that they will commit murder and horrible crimes, yet He still creates them. I’m told that we all have choices, and just because God knows someone will commit murder, they still made a choice to do that. I don’t understand how that would work for the victims that God knows will be murdered, raped, etc. What choice do you think they make, which results in their getting murdered, raped, etc? Do you think that if God creates someone knowing they will do a specific thing at a specific time, that they could do otherwise?
