A way out (perhaps): it does not follow from the fact that I will do something that I must do it (in the sense of being coerced, doing it against my will) 1) At time Tn God decides for the first time to do something. 2) If (1), then at no time before Tn did God know what his decision at Tn would be, because if he did, then he would not have decided at Tn for the first time . 3) But if he is all-knowing, then there is no time at which he does not know all truths – including truths about himself. C) So if (1) then he is not omniscient. There is a time before Tn at which he does not know something, namely what his decision (if any) at Tn would be.

Knowledge you have before the world. ***See First-Cause Argument in notes*** Modus Tollens: denying the consequent If P , then Q . Not Q .
