"Like Scott said, if in the future God knows that I will kill someone or rob a bank, how can I avoid doing that? I HAVE to, since it is in my personal future. If you disagree, tell me how you could avoid it."

God would not know that you are going to rob a bank unless you chose to rob a bank. What you chose right now forms the future, and God has already seen it. God does not KNOW you are going to do anything unless you DO it.

"This is simple logic."

Yes it is. But you are making one assumption.
You are still thinking of God as a person on a timescale. Like I said, God operates outside our concept of time. This is why your arguement is wrong.

"I'm trying hard not to get frustrated, here."

Good. Don't get frustrated. Just take a deep breath, and count to 10. :) I'm sorry I'm frustrating you. I really don't mean to. KC2GWX 73's
