Fandango Provocative Question #19

“Do you believe in fate and/or predestination? If so, what or who is the source? If you do believe in predestination, is there anything anyone can do to change their predestined fate?”

I believe that we all have a role to play in this universe. It is the reason for us being born. What that is, we sometimes know and sometimes we are oblivious to it. You can call it fate or destiny. But human beings are born with free will. They have their minds equipped with reasoning capabilities and the ability to use knowledge to make decisions. Our decisions lead us to the direction we choose, good or bad. We are responsible for our actions and the choices we make. It cannot be blamed on destiny, fate or preordination.

And bonus: “If you believe God is the source, and God has already determined the future for each of us, why should people bother to pray?”

God has created us, given us the power of free will, the ability to judge what is right and what is wrong. Our course in life has not been determined and neither is the fate set in advance. When we pray we ask for a change in our current situation, and God in His infinite mercy gives us what is best for us. Sometimes we ask for things which don’t have good consequences for us in the long run, hence the adage; “Be Care full of what you wish for” So praying helps because even if our wishes are not granted it brings peace to our heart.

  1. That was very well written response. God knows our future, but we have to travel through the story to get there. God orders our steps. Prayer is our only way of communicating with God. Then He leaves cookie crumbs for us to follow, only if we hunger to see it.
