Just a short question I just asked myself

What do you think about "foreknowledge" and "plan" being used interchangeably? Maybe someone else has a thought on that.

If I were to ask myself that question, I would answer myself that they should not be used interchangeably. To illustrate:

Father: Son, when you started going down this path, I knew that these bad things would be the result.

Son: So you planned for me to go through these hard times?

Father: What!? That doesn't make sense. It sounds like you're using foreknowledge and plan interchangeably. What I know will happen, and what I would prefer to have happen, aren't necessarily the same things.

I agree, knowing and planning are two different things entirely. However, in God's mind they are possibly just one...
