Season: 4 Episode: 059
Shanda and Albert discuss freewill and predestination today. If God knows everything, does He control who gets saved or not? Does predestination mean some are destined for hell beyond their control? Let’s take a deep theological dive!
“Freewill was part of the garden experience. Without the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, there is no freewill.”
“God let’s His will be known, but He does not impose His will on mankind.”
“Forced obedience is not obedience. Forced love is not love.”
“When you have the option to obey or disobey, you have freewill.”

Let’s define the terms of freewill and predestination.
Many people struggle with these two things because there are verses in the Bible that speak to predestination. We see freewill in Genesis through an indirect example of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Why does this show God gave Adam and Eve freewill?
When the Bible speaks to predestination, what is it referring to?
A lot of people use the story of Pharaoh and God hardening his heart when they want to prove their claim of predestination. Is there any truth in this? How would you explain this situation?
How would you explain the fact that God knows each decision we will ultimately make, but still gives us the choice to follow Him or not?
