    So, when you wreck your car because you were driving over the speed limit, that was God's will?

    I guess if you want to blame God for all of your stupid mistakes you can do that.

    So no one here believes God determined the crash of the rocket and space vehicle this past weekend? That these events do not fit in to His sovereign plan over all things?

    Odd . . .

    So you believe god determines all the cases of child rape and uses that for his purpose, EVERYTIME? At least the OV crowd can use the bible to explain evil, and don't try to pawn such horrible things off as "god's will". Thats absolutely VILE.

    Why do you equate a technical failure with deliberate and vile human sins?

    To say that GOD is pulling every string, that all things are determined and that man is determined, is to ignore the real world that GOD has made and thus, live in a fantasy world.
    Also, to say that GOD is pulling every string is the same as saying that there are no miracles because a true miracle is an interference with the cause and effect real world that GOD has made. If everything is a miracle, then.......nothing is.

    Who's technical failure?

    Don't you believe that everything that happens is God's predetermined will? Down to the minutia of losing/finding car keys?

    I believe that God has FOREKNOWLEDGE of all things, but He doesn't make things happen. Yes, man still has free will. God just knows what we will do.

    R.C. Sproul is typical of Calvinists. He claimed that if the path of even one stray molecule of gas in deep space is not directly controlled by God, then He is not sovereign and so is not God.

    Follow the logic of that out as far as you like but have a barf bag handy.
    You cannot convince me to your "your works cannot save you" corrupt doctrine.

    Can God be wrong in his "foreknowledge"?

    Where do you find any of that in the Bible?

    Romans 8:28

    God works in mysterious ways.
    Eph 2:8 For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God's gift --
    Eph 2:9 not from works, so that no one can boast.
    Eph 2:10 For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them. [HCSB]
