G-d and Free Will

In Augustine of Hippo’s Treatise on Free Will

He wrote:

(Evodius) I have a deep desire to know how it can be that G-d knows all things beforehand and that nevertheless, we do not sin by necessity...

Your trouble is this. You wonder how it can be that these two propositions are not contradictory and incompatible, namely that G-d has foreknowledge of all future events, and that we sin voluntarily and not by necessity.

See Augustine of Hippo claimed G-d could be out of time so the paradox of having free will and G-d knowing the Future could make sense.

 It shear ego to think everything true has to make sense.                                                      Lord M
