GOD PREDESTINES MAN TO HEAVEN OR HELL
DEPRIVING HIM OF THE FREEDOM OF CHOICE
Predestine and predestination do not appear anywhere inthe Bible. The only form that does is the words predestinate (sic)and predestinated (sic). Predestinate (sic) is defined as pre•des•ti•natev. tr. pre•des•ti•nat•ed pre•des•ti•nat•ing pre•des•ti•nates 1. TheologyTo predestine.
The etymological origin of the words is that they came from Saul’s usagein his letters to the Romans and Ephesians which says that God “predestines”man to a certain fate in life. Therefore, other than a “theological definition”or usage by Saul of Tarsus, “predestinate (sic)” and “predestinated (sic)”are not real, bonafide words but rather Saul’s way of saying man is predestined“...ed”.
Taken from Saul’s unchristian contention that God predetermines or predestinesour fate, Saul of Tarsus contradicts Jesus Christ when he wrote in Romans,
Saul used the words “predestinate (sic) & predestinated(sic)” rather than "predestine" and "predestined"
29 ¶ For whom he did foreknow (sic), he alsodid predestinate (sic) [to be] conformed to the image of his Son,that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
30 Moreover whom he did predestinate (sic), them he alsocalled: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified,them he also glorified.
4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundationof the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
5 Having predestinated (sic) us unto the adoption of childrenby Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated(sic) according to the purpose of him who worketh (sic) all things afterthe counsel of his own will:
According to the antichrist. it doesn't matter what you do, kill, rape,mayhem or mass murder, God has predestined you to either heaven or hell.According to the Saulists and 20th Century Born Again Christian's theology,they might be sharing "their heaven" with Adolph Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin,Saddam Hussein and Jeffrey Dalmer. They may but it won't be the heavenwhere Jesus Christ and God the Father dwells. It'll be Satan'sheaven if you can call living with Satan and his demonic spirits, heaven!
The etymology of the word "predestinate" and predestinated" comes fromSaul’s usage in Romans and Ephesians so other than a “theological definition”and usage by Saul of Tarsus, “predestinate (sic)” and “predestinated (sic)”are not bonafide words. Saul’s usage of the words “predestinate (sic)”and “predestinated (sic)” are in place of the accepted word today, viz.“predestine” or “predestined.”
predestine and predestined are defined as “pre•des•tine v. tr. pre•des•tinedpre•des•tin•ing pre•des•tines 1. To fix upon, decide, or decree in advance.2. Theology -- bogus taken from Saul of Tarsus' writings -- To foreordainor elect by divine will or decree.”
Aside from the bastardized theological definition which resulted fromSaul of Tarsus’ antichristian use and dogma, predestine means to fix, toset, to decide or decree. God predestined procreation to be between maleand female of whatever specie. God predestined man to be born and to morethan likely, eventually die.
To illustrate how Saul of Tarsus bastardized languages, foreordinationmeans “fore•or•dain v. tr. fore•or•dained fore•or•dain•ing fore•or•dains1. To determine or appoint beforehand; 2. Theological predestine” -- tackingon the bastardized theological definition resulting from Saul of Tarsus’misuse and misapplication of adjectives to God.
God foreordained John the Baptist to be a prophet, a harbinger to theadvent of Christ and His Gospel. Jeremiah was foreordained to be a prophetto the Israeli people! BUT NEITHER John the Baptist nor Jeremiah were deprivedof their free agency, their freedom to choose. Neither were forced or predestinedto become a prophets! Predestination is force, and force is anathema tothe Will of God. Force is the modus operandi of Satan. If force and predestinationwere God's modus operandi, there would be no need for a Judgment.
PREDESTINATION IS CONTRARY TO THE FREE WILL, THE FREE AGENCY ANDTHE PERFECT AND FINAL JUDGMENT OF MANKIND
Freedom to choose right from wrong and hence being judged for your ownactions and not the wickedness nor the righteousness of your neighbor(s)was the cornerstone to Christ’s Gospel and is the only basis of a wiseand perfect judgment.
By asserting man is “predestined” to be good or bad, G0 to heaven orhell Saul denies the goodness, compassion, mercy, wisdom of God. What Saulof Tarsus is advocating is you have no control over whether you are goingto go to heaven or hell for all of eternity so it doesn’t matter what youdo on earth. Eat, drink and By the same token, it doesn’t matter what youdo here on earth, how good or righteous of a life you live, how many poorpeople you help and how much of your money you give to the poor becauseyou are going to burn in hell! And there is nothing you can do about it!
This is the pernicious lies of Satan and the antichrist and flies inthe face of Christ’s words,
27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father withhis angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.
1 Peter 1:17
17 And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of personsjudgeth (sic) according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning[here] in fear:
James 2:14-20, 22, 24, 26
14 ¶ What [doth it] profit, my brethren, though aman say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of dailyfood,
16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be [ye] warmedand filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needfulto the body; what [doth it] profit?
17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew(sic) me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew (sic) thee my faithby my works.
19 Thou believest (sic) that there is one God; thou doest (sic)well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without worksis dead?
22 Seest (sic) thou how faith wrought with his works, andby works was faith made perfect?
24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, andnot by faith only.
26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faithwithout works is dead also.
12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward [is] with me, togive every man according as his work shall be.
But the Saulist’s -- the "20th Century Born-Again Christian's" -- God,Saul of Tarsus contradicted Christ and taught,
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and thatnot of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
So, what we have is a Mexican standoff between Jesus Christ and Saulof Tarsus! This is the classic definition of an antichrist. I could goon and on but why beat a dead horse?
However, as for me and my house, we’ll continue to serve the one andonly true God of mankind, Jesus Christ.
My plea to all who read this discourse, choose ye this day whom youwill serve, God or Satan. I pray for your sake and future, your choiceis God! Then humble yourself by getting on your hands in knees and prayto God for mercy, forgiveness, wisdom and understanding! Don't trust meor the arm of flesh (man). I'm only a messenger. Ask God and trust onlyin Him!
