My post about God’s will has generated some discussion about free will. Suppose God and I played a game of chess. He would know every move I would make before I made it. If I win the game it would be because God let me win. If I lost it would be because he didn’t let me win. The outcome of the game is and was always entirely in God’s hands. In the end would it really matter where I moved my chess pieces? In life we seem to have some choices, but there are many things we don’t choose. In the end an omnipotent God gets what he wants anyway. I can’t even choose not to play the game. Unless, just maybe, the God of Abraham doesn’t exist. But what do I know?
