I believe in predestination in the sense that God knew I would be saved, because He knew I would choose Him. He made me with a plan for my life and He knew I would choose it. So it is cool in that sense, because He did choose me. But Jesus says that He call out to everyone.
There is a great parable in Matthew 22. Jesus says the Kingdom of Heaven is like a certain King who prepared a marriage for His son. He invited people and they didn't come, so He went out and invited everyone, but you had to wear a wedding garment provided by Him to enter in. God invites EVERYONE to come to the Kingdom, but we can't come on our own terms. We need to let Him clothe us in HIS righteousness-- our stinky rags are not good enough.
