Predestination vs. Freewill?

A great amount of confusion has come from our inability to grasp the depth of the foreknowledge of God. God is omniscient. God knows everything and always has. He is incapable of learning, and is never surprised. He knows every choice we will ever make, its entire effect on history, and He knew it “since the beginning of the world.”  (Acts 15:18) That is why He can justly say “Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated” (Romans 9:13) before either was born.

Can God Make A Rock So Big He Can’t Move It?

The short answer is NO.

This is not an “unstoppable force versus immovable object” paradox. In fact the answer has little to do with God’s ability to create large objects, because he can create any size object he wants, or his ability to move them, since it takes much more energy to create something that to move it.

Why God cannot “exist”

Many people get confused about the difference between God existing and God being real, because the words are used interchangeably so often.

The word exist comes from two latin words, ex – which means out of, and sistere – which means to stand, or stand alone, as in self being. If God existed, he would have to be from something, in other words, he would have to be created or he would have to create himself. Continue reading “Why God cannot “exist””

How time actually works

Countless attempts have been made to explain time by describing the many aspects of it, or how we perceive it, or how we measure it. To date, I don’t know of anyone else who has actually defined time. Time is the delay caused by velocity through space less than the speed of light. Or it may be accurate to say time is the delay caused by not traveling through space at the speed of light, since time would be fastest at zero velocity.

Time is not the consequence of motion, but the lack of enough motion. Continue reading “How time actually works”
