  • Romans 8:29 For whom he did foerknow he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son that he might be the first born among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

  • I'm sorry, but most christians opinions come from what the bible says on it. If it says we were predestinated then what's toquestion about? Or maybe I do not understand what you want to know about predestination.

  • Perhaps God already knows the spirit you have. He knows what you're going to do but he is going to let you make that decision on your own. Just like your children. You know their personality and you know what they are going to do before they do it. But you just let them make their own decison.

  • I think a lot of Christian struggle with this because I hear a lot of oh we were just puppets to God then.. we really don't have free will if he is all knowing... how can he be a loving God and knowingly send all these people to hell... he sacrifices people (evil i guess) to build up these chosenfew...  how is that justice? my friend is big on this lol. I'm not really sure what I think I want to start looking into this to... so I cant wait to see the answers!

  • God does not send anyone to hell. We send ourselves. If he is telling to turn from sin and if you refuse he is not going to make you obey.

  • Many of us blame God for things we do to ourselves. In his word he has told us not to do certain things but we do it anyway. And when it time to pay the consequnces we blame him. I do not think its fair.

  • See I have to disagree if my child is going to harm themselves I will try my hardest to stop them! I wouldn't just sit and watch them destroy themselves and say well that'swhat they want okay. If God told me they were going to hell I wouldn't be able to say okay... I would try my hardest to get them to see they truth and into heaven.
