Determined by God

Roman
Catholicism
Determined by the Pope
The doctrine that all events, including human action are ultimately determined by cause external to the will. Some philosophers have taken determinism to imply that individual human beings have NO FREE WILL and cannot be held morally responsible for their actions.
Man's Free Will Choice
The Word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may do it. See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil, ... blessing and cursing; therefore CHOOSE LIFE, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days; that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to give them.
~ Deuteronomy 30:14-20
MAN Determines His Own Destiny

Man's Actions & BELIEFS
Jesus said a man will have whatever he says and believes in his heart.
"For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, HE WILL HAVE WHATEVER HE SAYS.
Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and YOU WILL HAVE THEM." ~ Mark 11: 23-24
GOD'S WORD
BEWARE lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. ~ Colossians 2:8
DE-TER-MIN-ISM
DEFINITION
Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. And the Lord God commanded the man saying, Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat: but of the tree of knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.
~ The book of
Genesis 2:15-17
"As for me and my house we will serve the Lord." ~ Joshua 24:15
1600's -1800's
For God so LOVED the WORLD that He gave His only begotten Son that
WHOSOEVER believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
~ John 3:16



Man has no free will. God determines your destiny.
Man has no free will. DNA determines your destiny.
Man has no free will. The Pope determines your destiny.

SO THE TRUTH is God LOVES Everyone and it is not His will that any should perish!
But, You Determine
Your Own Destiny!

If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead you will be saved...For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek.
~ Romans 10: 9-12
If everything is already determined, man has NO need for a relationship with God.
Conclusion:
God is Dead!



Philosophy
1882
Calvinism:
God determines eternal damnation for some people and salvation for a select few.
"... as for me and my house we will serve the Lord."
~ Joshua 24:15
