This question already has an answer here:

Something confuses me. God is omniscient, meaning He knows everything, including our decisions in life. God says we have free will, but how is that so if I can't make the choice to not do something God knows for a fact that I will do.

If God knows I will do something, I don't have the free will to not do it, meaning I don't have free will at all. So why does He say we have free will?

    You could scope a question like this by narrowing it down to an answerable level. For example 'did Calvin believe humans have free will?' is a answerable question. – Mike Aug 19 '13 at 4:49
