    Foreknowledge: How Does God Know?

    Yes God knows what his meticulously designed creatures will certainly do in any situation that God also meticulously creates because Act 15:18 says... “Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world.”... and this includes his work of knitting together every individual creature...

    Foreknowledge: How Does God Know?

    I apologize. Hard to switch gears in the middle sometimes. :)

    Foreknowledge: How Does God Know?

    Agreed! Agreed... but God does not require a philosophically created “middle knowledge”, as Tom posits, as an explination for how He “knows”. He knows without the necessity of a “3rd knowledge” created! Do you agree?

    Foreknowledge: How Does God Know?

    What “act”? Where did the “knowledge” of this “act” come from in order for your god to “know” to react to it?

    Foreknowledge: How Does God Know?

    Then out of the other side of your mouth you say... Who determined this “particular act” that your god is responding to? Your god... or... an external source?

    Foreknowledge: How Does God Know?

    and you suggest that He knows, for “certain”, what He did not determine Therefore if HE did not determine it then something other than He determined it! other than He = External source! Conclusion: Your god’s knowledge is “open” to an externally determined source! And still no biblical...

    Middle Knowledge... A Practical Understanding!

    I have previously shown what they appear to mean to me... Isa 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. What does “otiosely” mean? Otiosely; “Serving no practical purpose or result” What are “them” that he is referring to, that...

    Middle Knowledge... A Practical Understanding!

    And the author of this quote, in his own words, has stated what this quote does not mean, therefore it would be an intentional misrepresentation to posit this quote with a meaning the author explicitly denies! And as previously answered...

    Foreknowledge: How Does God Know?

    God determined to created, and design them, and every meticulous part of their environment therefore he certainly knows what they will do! There is no “possibly” necessary in his knowing... unless there is a “possible” external source! And your position still has zero biblical support...

    Foreknowledge: How Does God Know?

    “Could” is a term of “Open Theism”! “Could” is the opposite of certainty! You place “know” before “determined” which proves that your God’s “knowledge” is “open” to be “determined” by an external source! LFW-ism’s premise = “Free creature” = external source!

    Middle Knowledge... A Practical Understanding!

    You did not only take them at there word but also at there meaning irrespective of the contextual meaning of the original document! I have shown you that John Calvin himself denies their meaning therefore it is your responsibility to admit that their meaning is an intentional misrepresentation...

    Foreknowledge: How Does God Know?

    Of course... God is “capable of explaining” otherwise an answer would be based on philosophy! I prefer scripture! Isa 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. Act 15:18 Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of...

    Middle Knowledge... A Practical Understanding!

    If you were honest you would admit that you yourself did not get the quotes from the book yourself but from a anti-Calvinism website! Be honest Tom... Where is the inconsistency? You misrepresented Calvin... in turn assuming inconsistency... not proving it! Nope! As I said Total Depravity, a...

    Middle Knowledge... A Practical Understanding!

    Exactly! Then I show him where John Calvin himself denies the claim... in the same book! His deception is crystal clear to anyone who cares to dig into his claim, like I did, instead of taking it at face value. Some people just have evil intentions and continue in dishonesty.

    Middle Knowledge... A Practical Understanding!

    You think you can prove I’m inconsistent by quoting a 4th removed source that takes pieces of John Calvins comments, out of context, and intentionally pieces them together to deceptively form an idea that the original author did not intend? This is the same tactic the Devil uses when twisting...

    Middle Knowledge... A Practical Understanding!

    It is the language of Total Depravity! God does not have to make man sin in order to determine that man sin! He simply allows a sinner to do what a “natural” sinner does... or... If God determines a different outcome he will, by Grace, intervene! Either way God determines the outcome by...

    Foreknowledge: How Does God Know?

    But you can not biblically explain how God “certainly” knows “the things that are not yet done”! Philosophy is not scripture... and all you have is philosophical assumption! Your god may declare “the things that are... possibly... not yet done”... but he can not declare, for “certainty”, “the...
