The bible also says I knew you in the womb
No that is not predestination is it?
I thought that was just John the Baptist, but I can't remember.
Ah but foreknowledge is not the same thing as pre-destination.
That said --- I deal with pre-destination the same way I deal with the issue of whether it is possible to lose one's salvation --- when logical arguments can be made any direction, I try to err on the safe side.
