We do have a choiceScripture is filled with God giving us a choice.
Deut 30:19 “I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live;God is giving the children of Israel a choice. The first choice God gave Adam was not to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil as in Gen 2:16-17. Nearly all the parables of Jesus are all about the choices that we must make to follow Him. Hence, without doubt, God is giving us a choice.
Future choices already knownScripture also supports God knowing the future and the choices that we will make.
Luke 22:31-34 And the Lord said, “Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren. But he said to Him, “Lord, I am ready to go with You, both to prison and to death. Then He said, “I tell you, Peter, the rooster shall not crow this day before you will deny three times that you know Me.”If you look into Peter's denial, Christ knew every detail of it and the choice Peter will make even before it happened.
