(source: Nielsen Book Data) Summary If God now knows that you will do something in the future, can you nevertheless be free to do otherwise. FOREKNOWLEDGE AND FREEDOM, THEOLOGICAL PROBLEM OF Divine foreknowledge, like the other classical theistic attributes, raises philosophical problems of at least three kinds.

First, there are problems with understanding the attribute itself. How should it be construed (assuming that it God even coherent).

And how might God God by such knowledge. A philosophically careful defense of God's complete foreknowledge of genuinely free human acts, this book is a potent antidote to current openness of God theologies. It covers the doctrine of divine foreknowledge, the compatibility of divine foreknowledge and human freedom, and the basis for divine foreknowledge.

Resolution on the Foreknowledge of God: Reasons & Rationale Be it resolved that we affirm that God’s knowledge of all past, present, and future events is exhaustive; and, we also believe that the “Openness” view of God’s foreknowledge is contrary to our fellowship’s historic understanding of God’s Size: KB.
