Re: Can God Ever Have An Original Thought?

Cet-To says, "God is limited to the number of things He can create." Cet-To, you are confusing the number of things He HAS created with what He CAN create if He so desires to - which has infinite POSSIBILITIES and in which there are no limits as to what He can create (that are not illogical fallaci...

Re: Can God Ever Have An Original Thought?

Cet-To said, "God cannot make an infinite number of things it leads to contradictions since an actual infinite number of things has no beginning nor ending" What does "infinite" mean? It means unlimited - no limits. No beginning, no end and no limits on. If God has always created and is always acti...

Re: Can God Ever Have An Original Thought?

No one is really answering my original contention: that God cannot have a thought He'd never had before or something that He would one day do or decide, that He hasn't ALWAYS intimately known about. As if this was possible, then God would not be COMPLETE in His knowledge or all future things and ev...

Re: Can God Ever Have An Original Thought?

Whoever said God 'sees' all events simultaneously? y:-? Is God timeless or temporal? CeT-To, I'm still considering this, and some assumptions remain unclear to me. Timeless does not equal ‘without time’ . 'Outside of time' does not mean God doesn’t experience time/duration. It’s just God cannot be ...

Re: Can God Ever Have An Original Thought?

Cet-To, glad we got that one worked out. Really, it's what I meant all along. But just to throw a theological wrench in - the heart of the matter is, can God surprise Himself? Can He ever not have knowledge of something He might not decide or plan courses of action and events around until some subs...

Re: Can God Ever Have An Original Thought?

CeT-To, I think we're straining a knat, here. It is that ALL of God's KNOWLEDGE of events (past, present and future) are equally, simultaneously and perfectly clear to Him - certainly not that all events are all ongoing SIMULTANEOUSLY in real time or that He can simultaneously SEE THEM playing out ...

Re: Can God Ever Have An Original Thought?

Sure he knows all but he doesn't like see the block of timeline in one go because if he did it naturally means that there is no time but all events are equally real and there infront of God. What do you mean? Is God ALL knowing or not? Can He see and direct the future or not? We see events as they ...

Re: Can God Ever Have An Original Thought?

You take the position of B theory of time which includes God seeing all time simultaneous and all time is real which means Moses is still in the desert thousands of years ago and yet in heaven and Jesus is still at the cross and yet at the right hand of the Father. That is absolutely NOT what I am ...

Re: Can God Ever Have An Original Thought?

If God can know all of OUR future actions, then He also must know what all of HIS future reactions and related thoughts will (accordingly) be in reaction to OUR future actions. If God has always known everything about us - before history - then how could He not also ALWAYS have known that, at some ...

Re: The foundation for a meaninglful life or action.

I was told by an atheist that they believe life has value simply because they find their life to be of value, and thus, assume that everyone else would view life as valuable also for the same reason he does; that he just "sees" it as valuable. My first thought was "tell that to someone who's consid...

Re: Hells Dominion by B.W. Melvin

I've read the book twice, it was a good read. I will always treasure the book, and will only loan it to people of such high calibre as Danny, my wife, a lifelong friend and hopefully others in the future. If I'm being honest, which I always try to be often at the expense of clarity, it strikes me a...

Re: Free will and Omniscience

anyway okay lets accept your view then that God is outside of time but can interact with time for a second. Imagine one day bam the Holy spirit reveals himself as a pillar of fire like in the time of Moses and one day God destroys the universe ( and time since you think its the only place you think...

Re: Can God Ever Have An Original Thought?

LOL i think you have it the other way around, it's not that God knows his will because he knows the future but God knows the future because he knows his will. Where did you get the guesses thing from? I never said that. Absolutely. If God's will depended on future events then it would not be His wi...
