I would like clarification on the following…
You wrote, “God knows what will happen, but not who will do it…. God’s omniscience and control stretches to what will happen, not to who will do it.“ How is His “not knowing” not against His omniscience?
What can’t we say He does know how we’ll use our free will in choosing our role in the drama but that He isn’t causing our choices or decisions? I fail to see how His knowing beforehand & our choosing are mutually exclusive or how His knowing demotes the system as determined. Just like a parent can know beforehand how their child will choose when offered some role options in the school drama, but that doesn’t mean the parent interferred w/ or caused the child’s choice.
