Question: Who believes that our life “path” is outside of our control?
Answer #1: DETERMINISM = The belief that everything in the universe is absolutely dependent on and governed by natural laws.
Answer #2: FATALISM = The belief that all past, present and future events are fixed by an all-powerful force, like ‘Fate.’
Answer #3: GOD’S SOVEREIGNTY = God has complete control over all things, including our choices.
Question: If God is all powerful and all knowing, can we have REAL and FREE choices? (Acts 2:22-23; 13:47; 14:1)
Reality: COMPATIBILISM = The Bible teaches that God is sovereign and that we have real, free choices.
Principle of the Path: The path you CHOOSE has more to do with your final destination than anything else.
“Direction - not intention - determines our destination.” – Andy Stanley
A Better Way: Inform your heart with the TRUTH. (John 8:31-32)
Today’s Insight: We will never FEEL our way into a great life – it’s better to OWN our choice as to which path we will travel.
