I try to evaluate an argument put forward by Gerard Hughes that attempts to reconcile these two things - unsuccessfully in. The argument from free will, also called the paradox of free will or theological fatalism, contends that omniscience and free will are incompatible and that any conception of God that incorporates both properties is therefore inherently contradictory. These arguments are .

      6 Theological determinism gets around this difficulty at the price of undercutting human freedom. I do not find intelligible the contention of Calvin that although God's omnipotence and providence actually govern all specific events, including the acts of individual human beings, we still wi11 freely (Institutes of the Christian Religion, Book I, chs. 16, 18), or the contention of Jonathan.

The Bible teaches: 24 God is Spirit (John ). Because God is spirit, this helps explain why God is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient.

In this lesson, we will learn about three theological terms: omnipotence, omniscience, and omnipresence. In monotheistic religions, these terms are used to describe the nature of God.

Boethius’ discussion of Divine omniscience can be found in his Consolations of Philosophy, Book 5. Facing his own death, Boethius reflects on the human condition and imagines a dialogue with Lady Philosophy, who points out the vast web of Aristotelian causation in.

The book is neither a book about the existence of God nor about proofs for his existence. It is a book about the possibility of a consistent concept of omniscience which can be attributed to God.

And it invalidates opposite claims and shows that they are based on wrong or very doubtful premises. If God foreknows the future, then he also foreknows his own future actions.
