I know Free Will is a major part of Christianity, so how do those verses mentioned in the post title- especially verse 40- apply to this belief?
There are alsoother mentions of predestination in the NT:
1 Corinthians 2:7
Good question. As a Christian it was one that I was told to over look b/c it was just the Devil behind all confusion, hhhmmmm... What you are asking, would cause a glitch in the matrix if all minds thought on a higher level of consciousness at once. It's like asking a dog bite it's tail; it will chase it to prove it is there (b/c master said), but when finally bitten it becomes painful reality.

Anon... To compare what I THINK my kids will do to what a God KNOWS you will do is apples and oranges. The last sentence you wrote... please read it back to yourself. Now, really, does that make any sense to you? You have a choice but you're only choosing what he wants you to choose? How is that a REAL choice? It NOT one at all.
The choices you think you are making are not real choices. Choices change things and since your God supposedly already knows the outcome of everything, you are in actually changing nothing- unless you're saying he makes mistakes and changes his mind about your path... The free will you think you have is nothing more than an illusion- you are doing only what has already been planned for you to do. Are you saying he only knows the beginning and the end and whatever happens in between is just filler?
Can anyone answer my questions without using circular logic that goes nowhere?
