The Westminster Confession

I agree with Helm regarding Craig's misinterpretation of the Westminster Confession:

I also agree with his criticisms of middle knowledge. And Helm is correct that divine foreknowledge is grounded in divine foreordination. 

However, Helm's appeal to certain prooftexts (Acts 2:23; Rom 8:29; Rom 11:2) is somewhat confused. Proginosko sometimes means "to choose beforehand" rather than "to know beforehand". The meaning is idiomatic. A carryover from OT usage, where treaties and covenants use yada to denote "choosing".
