    when predestination is used in the bible its talking about the Jews and not the philosophical greco-roman idea of the concept .

    Robert Erwine A lot of people who believe that could save money by only buying a New Testament. Less carry weight also.

    My current stance is to disagree with this article.

    God has made the opportunity available with a pre-determined plan to make salvation available to men.

    However, I can recall 3 places the Bible says that God does not use favoritism, meaning that God has made the opportunity equal to Jews and Gentiles alike. This would have to apply to individuals as well.

    The Bible says God has no respect of persons. Doesn’t it.

    John 15:16 English Standard Version (ESV)
    16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.

    God chooses us, and the people that he chooses will abide in him.

    I see that every human, being created in God’s image, was designed to be like Christ.

    It is not his will that any should perish. Therefore those that do perish, do it against God’s predestined design. Those who choose life in Christ will live, as God predesigned.

    The debate isn’t over whether predestination is in the Bible, but over exactly what prooridzō means

    Yes , as far as all were predestine to go to Heaven. But not for some to go to Heaven, and some to go to Hell. Jesus died on a Cross for everyone. He gave a choice that you could believe in Jesus , and live everlasting. Or not believe in Jesus , and forever be lost. But God didn’t predestine you to be lost forever.

      Louise Cummings every single person on earth is predestined to heaven? Or only those who believe?

    Romans 8:28, the predestination is about being like Christ through sharing in Christ’s sufferings (Romans 8:16-17)
    Ephesians 1:5 Paul means that those who have become believers and marked by the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:13) are adopted into God’s family and will someday receive the inheritance of a begotten child (Ephesians 1:11, 14).

    He had already determined when He was born by the Virgin Mary. That I will die on the Cross , Shed His Blood on the Cross for Who So Ever Will Trust Him as Lord and Savior. Will be saved. Why did He say For God So loved The World. That who so ever believe in Him Should Not Perish. But have Everlasting Life. Who is who so ever. Oh I see what you false teachers teach. That means a few He foreknew. Well He foreknew Me. He fore knew everyone. Or it couldn’t be Who so Ever Will. Who is everyone.
