you're thinking in very human words, which isn't how God thinks. Many Theologians think of God lives "outdoors" time; it particularly is, there is no previous, recent, or destiny for God. For Him, each and every thing exists all on the comparable time. So, it particularly is unlike He is conscious the destiny; He is conscious all of it. yet, it form of feels we are able to alter our destiny. it particularly is portion of what prayer is approximately - in case you ask for something, and God supplies it to you, it particularly is super. in case you probably did no longer ask, then you definately won't get it, whether God "is conscious" you decide on it. something like that (no longer elementary to describe in in basic terms some words!). a number of what you're speaking approximately is John Calvin's predestination theory. it particularly is something Catholics don't think in nonetheless. the assumption is that there is an "decide on," who're going to Heaven, and God already is conscious who they are, and, there's no longer something you're able to do approximately it. To me, that's in no way logical. it would recommend there is no element on even attempting, as, the device is "fixed." i will't settle for that. Hell isn't a place nonetheless. it particularly is only loss of existence - that's what the Bible says. in fact, we are able to settle for the present of existence, provided to us via God as a recent of grace (that's love). If we settle for it, we live (in Heaven). If no longer, we die, physique and soul the two. yet, it particularly is OUR decision. whether God is conscious the consequence, it remains as much as us. And, it form of feels we human beings can exchange our minds; God seems hopeful that we are going to. Jesus gave 3 parables in a row (Prodigal Son, lost Coin, and lost Sheep) that deals with that very element. good judgment is super significant while coping with this God stuff. It grew to become into so severe to analyzing Theology that we had to take specific classes in good judgment, and reason on the seminary I went to. If something does not seem to make experience, you the two don't have the incredible understand-how of it, or, it particularly is undeniable incorrect!
