Can I ask you something personal, since you're the only eye I know. And you don't have to answer this.

Millions of people follow Jesus Christ, and do not have a bible, go to church, or do any religious activities. They simply believed. Believing, is not a religious act. Jesus Christ is not Religion. Jesus Christ condemned religion. You are writing out of ignorance.
But wait...are you actually stupid?, or you just cannot understand.
God is omniscient.
God knows all actions you will take, before you do them. And God knows all the outcomes of such actions/thoughts, before you do.
But you do not know what you will do, until the appointed time in your life and history confronts you.
So you have free will, because you were not in existence before time on the throne with God seeing all the actions you would do before you were born.
So although God knew what you would do at age 10 or 20 or 30 or 70 or 80...YOU DONT.
How come you still no understand?
Maybe a better writer can write it for you. How about Counter Strike? you want him to explain it? or maybe Skombolis, he a pretty good writer.
Iyai!oy! my goodness you is as dense as a volcano rock, no wonder you turn atheist, God can't get nothing through that thick skull of yours.
Hello Trifectal, I'm not sure that I've ever posted to you before but a question here if I may, you said that many people believe in Christ but don't have a Bible or go to church?.........but isn't following Jesus Christ means to obey his Word?, I know that the world is populated by many false churches, pastors and denominations, but if one is honest and sincere in heart unto Christ then God WILL lead them to where the truth is being preached in it's fullness, you see that is how a believer stays strong in the spirit by staying up under the Word preached, because the Word preached sent down by God through the mouth piece ( the pastor ) he is using is food to the inner man ( our spirit/soul ) for us to grow by and stay strong in Christ just as natural foods are needed to sustain the physical body, without which we wither and pass away if we go too without it, the same goes for the spirit without the Word, we will eventually back slide and go back into a world of sin.

We must agree however when you told him that Jesus Christ is not a religion but the mighty God IN whom we serve, and oyr salvation is all about HIM and him alone.

I welcome your feedback on this and have a Blessed evening.

Romans 10:13-15
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. 14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? 15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

Meanwhile, dreaming stuff up in your own head without verifiable evidence is "truth" ?

Call me a fraud then, I reject your concept of "truth". <smile>

Since you seem to presume understanding, then explain to me how you can follow Jesus if not through the Bible? Where do you get your information about Jesus and what he wants from his followers from?
God is omniscient.
God knows all actions you will take, before you do them. And God knows all the outcomes of such actions/thoughts, before you do.
But you do not know what you will do, until the appointed time in your life and history confronts you.
Correct, so far.
So you have free will, because you were not in existence before time on the throne with God seeing all the actions you would do before you were born.
So although God knew what you would do at age 10 or 20 or 30 or 70 or 80...YOU DONT.

Nope. Wrong. I think I see where you are getting lost now, though. It doesn't matter who is the one who is omniscient. As soon as the future is knowable, then fate exists, and free will cannot. It doesn't actually matter who it is who knows the future; you, me, God. It's the fact that the future is knowable at all.

Ironically, we would not actually know if we had free will or not unless we didn't by being omniscient. If no one was omniscient, then it would forever remain a mystery.

There you go again! Go read Galatians 5:22-23.

Maybe. Depends on perspective I suppose. Some can and some can't.
Whether some can or cannot is one question. Whether one should or should not is another. If everything is God's will, then everything should be celebrated, seems to me. Maybe part of the Christian path is learning to embrace what appears to be evil. In fact, isn't "evil" part of God's plan too?

I'm glad that horse link I sent Annie J by mistake became such a talking point.

Your Nelly surely was a cutie, tho I too had to 'look' closely'- having been with Zebras in Africa - I haven't seen a horse with these beautiful marking before.

Well we will agree to disagree then, just like every other subject.

Because its very simple to me. God knows all the actions thoughts and outcomes that happens in your life, you do not, because you are not God.

So when you take an action, do a deed, say a word, that is your choice. Because there is no way for you to know you would have done or said a,b,or c. You did and said those things on your own, in your own power, in your own Free Will.

That it. I no know how to make my position any clearer. So now you can find another Jesus Follower to argue this point with for the infinite times you discuss it already.
