Storyboard Text

  • God is omniscient, thus he must know everything. what he sees must occur.
  • "God foresees all things and cannot be mistaken"
  • God cannot reward and punish fairly
  • We have no freedom of judgement if God knows what we will do
  • God does in fact know all things, yet this does not interfere with the free will of mankind
  • So then, in time, things follow on from something else and we have a free choice.
  • God being timeless, he sees it all and knows, but he doesn't make it happen.
  • God sees everything at once and has peculiar knowledge. he knows what we will do but just not in time
