I am saying that his nonintervention in tandem with his omniscience, omnipotence, and omnipresence negates the possibility of true free will. Or his intervention, if you imagine he intervenes. It really doesn't matter. We would be, at best, on rails, moving towards a predetermined outcome that has been know since the moment of creation.<quoted text> No it doesn't. Not if you are going to say its God's fault or he shares in the blame for not intervening instead of leaving the responsibility solely on the person who committed the sins. How is that not you passing the buck from the believer to God as far as responsibility? You don't have to be passing it from yourself to be arguing it should be passed
<quoted text>It seems like you are saying the same thing just in two different ways, which is God not intervening means we don't have free-will
Obviously for him to intervene he would have to know what going to happen to decide to intervene
But its not a big deal to m either way. If I'm not seeing the distinction maybe it's me. Since we aren't going further on it I am all right leaving it wherever
God would not simply share in the blame, he is completely to blame for anything that happens, good or bad. Punishing people for behaving according to their nature and for doing exactly what they have always been destined to do since the beginning of time, and for violating an arbitrary set of laws by "sinning" is utterly nonsensical.
