God Knows, But You Still Choose

If God knows everything that is going to happen, then do we have any choices in any matters?

Yes. We do have choices. God just knows which ones we’ll make.

For example, if I leave a plate of cookies in plain reach of a child who loves cookies, do I know what is going to happen to those cookies? Yup. The same thing that happens when you leave cookies for most people: the cookies get eaten.

Now, I knew what was going to happen, but did the child still have a choice? Yes.

So just because God knows what choices we will make, it doesn’t mean that we don’t have free will.
