Did you ever read Dune? That was the whole point of the book - to address what would happen if someone could see the future. Spencer decided that if you could see the future, you would be constrained by it.<quoted text>
Knowing what choice someone will make ahead time doesn't mean they didn't have a choice. That choice simply can be seen in advance
I don't understand how this keeps coming up and am not going to get into a long debate about it but according to the logic you guys employ if Ms Cleo really could see into the future it would mean man has no free will
It makes no sense. By looking into the future what one is really doing is putting themselves at a point in time where the events they are looking at have already taken place and are now part of the past. Them having the ability to do so in no way altered or dictated those events
I respect you Hiding but this particular way of thinking has never made any sense. The only way someone knowing someone else's future could possible have any impact on that person is if they told the person ahead of time what their future was. Then by knowing that it might cause them to act differently. But being able to see what someone decided to do by looking into the future in no way took away their free will. Had Judas made a different choice than that is what God would have seen by knowing the future.
Anyways, I think you're mistaken here. God sent His son knowing He how the story went. Had He Created a different universe, He would have had a different outcome. But He didn't. He Chose this universe and that outcome.
Also, having read the story, it appears to me that Judas doesn't actually want to betray Jesus. It's just that he has no choice, because God removed his free will.
