Predestination VS Free Being The question is How is our being determined Whether or not any specific individual is among the select Is this determined by an unconditional unchangeable order of God Or does God offer salvation to all men and then give each individual the power to choose for himself whether to accept or reject that offer Calvinism says that the decision whether or not a particular individual will be saved is entirely up to God and man cannot influence that decision Although there is strong evidence stating other wise Salvation is offered from God to all men and Gods desire is for all men to be saved If God sincerely wants all people to be saved and wants none to rot in the flames of hell and if the decision is entirely up to Him man has no choice then all people will be saved and none will be lost The logical conclusion of unconditional decision must be choice Yet we know only a few will be saved and most lost Matt 713-14 2214 Therefore God does not sincerely want everyone saved or else man does have a choice Calvinists argue that since God knows everything He must know all about a persons life even before he is born Once God knows a thing then it is decided and cannot be changed Therefore ones eternal destiny is chosen before his is born He has no choice This defeats the purpose of sin If God knew what his people were going to do before they did it he could change their action since God wants to save all God also gave man free will Free will the choice to take their life and do what they wanted with it Then once judgment day came the person would be decided upon from what they were like in their life My opinion about predestined life is that there is not a will already planned for
