Do you believe the course of your life if pre written, or the out come is base on decision you`ve made? Or decisions your parents made for you?

All 3. I believe that God already has my life story written out (as the Bible says) and I think life is like those books where you get to choose how the story ends. We (some of us) live in a way where outside influences friends, family, etc determine the choices we make but I think which ever choice we make was pre determined anyways

I think free will alters it. I don't think anyone is destined to kill himself/herself. I believe it's a combination of both.

Pre-written...with a twist of all knowing God anticipated free will...so kinda like taking route 40 to Virginia instead of 95...both will get you there but one takes longer than the other...as a Christian who believes God I also believe that God knows in advance which route we will take and exactly what obstacles we need to get us to our purpose *no matter WHAT that purpose is positive or negative*

I agree some do let outside influence determines the choice they make. Sometime we do need second or third opinion. I also believe God has everythingto do with our choices, but I don't think our life is pre written. To me it's a story that God start, and as we grow, and faces life challenge we finish the story
