Alternately, you can do what the Jehovah's Witnesses did, realize that the whole "predestination/knowledge of the future" thing is illogical and inconsistent with what the bible says


"For whom [God] did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son." - Romans 8:29

"I am God, and there is none like me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done." - Isaiah 46:9-10

"When the Spirit of truth comes, he will declare to you the things that are to come." - John 16:13

"In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things." - Ephesians 1:11

"In your book was written ... the days that were formed for me, when as yet there were none of them." - Psalms 139:16

Would you care to know how we interpret that verse in the context of our views on predestination?

EDIT: Those verses?

PurpleLizard, quoting scripture proves nothing to non-believers. We literally don't take any of that old stuff, Those are words from books written before women shaved their legs and armpits.
Proves nothing, inspires even less. If you want to prove things to us, you need to use things that are observable, not interpreted by multitudes of people who simply WANT there to be an afterlife and god.
There is no being in existence able to see time ahead of itself.
How dare you!

I think he meant to quote those verses at me in order to disprove the JW interpretation of predestination, not to convince an atheist.

But I guess he's not interested in learning anything

I don't usually do the account history thing, but a 5 year old account with less than 50 karma? If nothing else, that's a serious exercise in forethought.

Yes.

Yes, his posts are at the pinnacle of intellectual dishonesty and moral depravity.
Is it naive to dream of a world without war?
