My logical mind has severe issues when people use absolute words like "all", "none" "never" "every" etc. in instances where a relative term like "many or some", "very few or not many", "not often" should be used. Example if a person tells me that "God is all powerful, everywhere, all knowing" then I have to logically conclude that there can be no freewill. As a matter of fact God is making me write this now. In addition, this would mean that God can do anything including change His mind or break His word. Please tell me if there is an error in my logic. Thanks

Hmm,I would argue that all paths are give by this God and we would have no choice but to choose the path preselected by this God. Free will would be a great and grand illusion.
Well, if that is the case, then there is but one path and we have absolutely no free will. However, it does seem pointless to create a world that is 100% predictable, a world in which you already how everything turns out.
I could understand why you would hate the idea of not having a free will. My question was according to religion do you see a flaw in my conclusion? No free will you could not self terminate unless predestined.
