Man has "modifed" free-will...but he cannot escape destiny....

Do you believe that it has been written that man has free-will? That man is pre-destined? Do you think destiny destroys the idea of the so called "free-will"? Think about this, have a coin, choose head or tail? then have it tossed... if you win, you are destined to win... if you get otherwise..you are destined to lose. Did you use your free-will? Yes...freewill is a freedom to choose... What if you are destined to choose what you have chosen? Free-will? I bet No, but destiny...? Does this follows that, God has given man a free-will yet he designed his destiny? Where is free-will there? Sometimes, I wonder why God gave man a freedom to choose yet at the end His "will" happens? Is He toying with Us? -------------------------------------------------- I am not blasphemer...i just want to drive some points. Maybe that is the reason why He is God...He cannot be understand by human brains...He cannot be measure...the best thing that man can do is to Trust His Heart. :)

You are responsible for your action..You control your life..there is no right or wrong in every decisions that you make but it is how you handle your every mistake that makes your life so challenging and colorful... :)

I would rather use the word "accountable". Man is accountable for his actions. The doctrine of free will or predestination are just doctrines and belief or non belief does not in any way make man less accountable. We are faced with major decisions in life to turn away from sins and to have faith in Him and we will be accountable for our decisions. We will be judged on how we reacted to God's call and invitation to come to Him and follow Him. These are expressed declarations in the Bible. I don't bother myslelf too much with the issue of predestination and free will which takes several definitions.
