To what extent do we as humans have free will and to what extent has God predestined our lives?
Isaiah 46:10 "Declaring the end from the beginning,and from ancient times the things that are not yet done,saying,My councel shall stand,and I will do all my pleasure:"
Romans 9:11-16 "(For the children being not yet born,neither having done any good or evil,that the purpose of God according to election might stand,not of works,but of him that calleth;)It as was said unto her,the elder shall serve the younger.As it is written,Jacob have i loved,but Esau have i hated.What shall we say then?is there unrighteousness with God?God forbid.For he saith to Moses,I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy,and I will have compassion on whom I will hae compassion.So then it is not of him that willeth,nor of him that runneth,but of God that sheweth mercy."
Romans 3:4 "God forbid:yea,let God be true,but every man a liar;as it is written,that thou mightest be justified in thy sayings,and mightest overcome when thou art judged."
Psalms 2:11-12 Serve the Lord with fear,and rejoice with trembling.Kiss the Son,lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way,when his wrath is kindled but a little.Blessed are all they that put thei trust in him.
