So either my actions are dictated directly by deterministic laws of physics... or I am free to make my own decisions so long as an action does not include "law breaking".

Either I can influence your life as God can without breaking laws of physics... or I don't have freewill at all.

If God is limited by lumenal speed, then perhaps he can operate via the "quantum gate". It's not some sci-fi science terminology I saw on Star Trek. The quantum gate is a real information transmission channel that we humans have only began to experiment with (quantum teleportation, quantum cryptography, distant entanglement, quantum computing, etc.). Perhaps God has already mastered the use of quantum transmission so that he can affect photon at point A without actually traveling to point A physically or sending classical signal.
