Ignoring doesn’t help. You will not see these people anymore, but they will still messing the threads for others.
There is only one solution. Once you see that the discussion doesn’t have sense anymore because other person is not able to accept different opinion… just give him / her a hint that it’s over and stop answering.
I hope we are all smart enough to not continue nonsense if nobody else wants it…
You need to take your own advice. Read your posts on this thread.
Like many bible stories things need to be taken as parable. I see this more along the line of God is the ultimate capacity of prediction (i.e., the sins of the father are the sins of the son). But who knows if time evern works the same for the Big Guy?
But He does give us free will so it is up to us as to how far we stray.
let’s try this another way…
God is fully aware of all souls/spirits/etc… this is so from the foundations of…
one is picked to be Judas because it is known what that one will do… and he does it…
point being we none of us can hide from God… we can’t trick God…
God places each where God needs them to be… so they can do what they will do…
consider what kind of mind that can make it all work…
some even though they are what is called “given over”… ALL still work for God…
they just don’t know it… why?
Book of Eph: chap 4 verse 6 last sentence…
God Bless You… so many lack a true understanding of that phrase… and what it truly means…
might wanna read what it says some time…
Yes. That’s why I ended discussion 6 post ago.
Back to the OP’s question.
Let’s take a look at more of the passage which the OP cited:
Reading I Jer 1:4-10
In the days of King Josiah, the word of the LORD came to me, saying:
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
before you were born I dedicated you,
a prophet to the nations I appointed you.
“Ah, Lord GOD!” I said,
“I know not how to speak; I am too young.”
But the LORD answered me,
Say not, “I am too young.”
To whomever I send you, you shall go;
whatever I command you, you shall speak.
Have no fear before them,
because I am with you to deliver you, says the LORD.
It is obvious that God was speaking to Jeremiah, not Judas.
We are not told what God spoke, if anything, to judas while Judas was in the womb.
To assume we’re all like Jeremiah is a huge assumption.
The Bible tells us what God said to Jeremiah as well as the other prophets for a particular reason
It should be comforting to contemplate that God knew us “in the womb”
It should not be a “gotcha” moment, if you get my drift.
