    God's foreknowledge of all does not equate to God forcing us to do anything or to make any particular choices.

    Romans 10:9-10 KJV That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

      But you haven't made the choice yet. I know, that's your point: it doesn't exist yet because you haven't made it, so how can God foreknow something that does not yet exist. If He does foreknow it, then it will exist. It's fixed. So, in that sense, it would already exists, meaning your choice is already set, thus when the time comes for you to "make the choice," it really won't be a choice after all because, in a deeply weird way, you already made it. Is that about right? Now I have a headache.

      Everyone who has not believed the Gospel of grace is not saved, no matter what else they believe or do.
      By that measure, how many professing Christians are on their way to the Lake of Fire?

        That's really the only point I was trying to make; not about the philosophical nuts and bolts but whether God is responsible by (hypothetically) simply foreknowing. But I see LH's point, too. I think.

          I don't see anyone in this thread arguing that it does.

          Yes. And now you know part of my reason for being open view.
