While a number of objections to the doctrine of divine timelessness have been aimed at atemporalists in general, this chapter discusses an objection to that doctrine aimed not at atemporalists in general but rather at Christian atemporalists. In so doing, it examines two recent versions of this objection, arguing that they fail and offering a suggestion as to how one can affirm both Christian orthodoxy and the doctrine of divine timelessness without thereby contradicting oneself.
