GOD'S WILL & FREE WILL
bymxdtpson 01 May, 2018 18:23
Hi to you who's reading this,
I just have a question about God's will and Free will. Everyone knows about Judah, right? It was God's will that he betrayed Jesus to fulfill the prophesy. Does Judah really have free will that time? I mean what if he chose not to betray, wasn't it an opposite of God's will? I'm confuse. Any help? Thanks!

It was not the will of god to be betrayed.... God knew that he woild be betrayed... there is a difference in willing and knowing. God Knew. Judas was in his free will
Judas in his free will betrayed and later when he realised that he has done wrong he went back to the priests to return the money and when failed to do so he committed suicide.
The day man disobeyed God and ate from the fruit of knowledge he became equal to God in knowing the right from wrong. We all are free willed..that is why the prayer "Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven' .
This is how I have understood the topic of free will.

Another example is of Peter's denial... God knew that Peter would deny him. Denial wasn't God's will it was Peter's free will.
