"But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander." ~ 1 Peter 3:15-16
Thinking of Omniscient in Predestination

One of the problems we run into when thinking about predestination, is how much God knows or foreknows. If we hold to the view that God is indeed omniscient, then God would have perfect knowledge in every sense of the word. If this is the case, then it doesn’t really matter whether foreknowledge is compatible with our freedom to choose or not. There still exists a need to account for why God chose to create this particular world instead of another, in view of His omniscient. Surely He wills whatever He wills, and has every right to do so. But what exactly prompts Him to create a world whereby Lucifer will rebel and Adam & Eve will fall (doesn’t really matter if they are free moral agents or not), being fully aware of it even before He created them? That, in my view, ought to be the underlying question for thinking predestination. But of course, it will be much easier if He tells us instead. =)
