An omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient god, and free will can't coincide.
Debate Rounds (3)
God can give you free will,
As Such, an Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omniscient god whoever can.
for example, :"I live next to a little girl. Every day she goes outside to play. She plays in the backyard alone for hours. Some days I see her other days I do not. Btu one thing I do know, whether she goes out to play or not, so long as I do not talk to her, I have in no way effected her free will to go out and play in her back yard."
God, who knows the potential out comes of all things, does not make those things happen.
when indicating God is the mover of all things, as in Hinduism the Creator is refereed to as the Controller, He is as a hoist. The hoist does not do the moving on it's own, it is directed, and unbiasedly effective for all who use it's functions according to their purposes.
Knowing the future will occur exactly how it will does not make that individual responsible for it's outcomes.
Take for instance the account of the Jews, because if we refer to God we can make reference to his character. -
The Israelites left Egypt, 1 000 000 strong. That entire generation did not make it to the promised land, because although God told them what to do, and supplied them readily with food and a substantial law to prevent a social collapse, the complained and denied him throughout the duration of the 40 years. Had God spoken tot he people inhabiting the Promised land at that time, assuredly they would have denied him his wisdom and rebelled against his covenant.
- So assuredly, When God chooses to do something, he does so with consideration of the end result. Offering a better path, while burying the lesser, and always providing a brighter future.
In the event his actions were to be a negative effect on the prolonged actions of the world, assuredly he should remain silent.
When a man is going to Rob you. He has a proposition, he can either do it or not. And although God knows what he will do, he also knows that he provided all the judgments to make the right decision. Meaning the guilt is not upon God. It is always clear that with all the negative things int he world, we are still well suited to be a positive thing. and our judgment will be according.
The Approval of God, is only in that we make our own decisions,
that we can make the decision to glorify him, and take refuge in him, and rejoice in him,
and not be like the drones that are captive to their desires to glorify ignorance, and take refuge in adultery, and rejoice in injustice,
and this way, God remains in himself the perfect entity which we can call on for strength and wisdom when we are low.
As God is our enabler, he provides all ends, that we can choose readily, and in all decisions Glorify him by proving the righteous decisions are utmost pleasing, and the unrighteous decisions are always impairing.
Although God is all-powerful, God does have a limitation. God's first and last limitation is that he must always be pleasing to himself. God has provided abundantly a moral law which leads to prosperity. All his actions serve the greater good and not the lesser.
God is not required to stop everything in order to prove he did not want it to occur. His expression is one of repenting from evil thoughts and prospering through communion. If there are those who freely ignore this in solitude, or rebel against this in groups demonstrating through the poor fruits of the labour God's will is clearly perfect: God, for his actions are abundant in the provision of wisdom.
Free will is not impaired by God knowing what will occur,
I can or do not have to do, anything I do.
Sage13 forfeited this round.
Because God is the most high, and his judgments are to not be contradicted, but instead acknowledged,
in the state of mind that, If God is the God we are talking about, his judgments are the manifestation of wisdom itself.
-God can give freewill to anyone, even if logically it is bewildering.
-knowing the outcome does not manifest the result.
-God can not want something but allow it to happen. Like watching a child stuff his face with cake before eating his dinner.
-Freewill without a Creator means math is the usurper of all decisions, leaving no decisions available.
I love doing this.
