Why do some people receive the gift of faith and not others?
(12-20-2011, 04:59 PM)Doce Me Wrote: God doesn't reprobate a man by causing him to freely sin mortally and be damned.  He reprobates him (eternally permits and punishes) because he does freely sin mortally.  If I'm true friends with another man for a lifetime, but at the end a little unseen wellspring of hate rises up and I murder him, should I not be tried for murder?  A final mortal sin in our life is completely free and is far worse than murder. God doesn't withdraw mercy and hope - as long as we are alive! - we refuse it.

Then why is it necessary to believe God has chosen our eternal destiny for us before the beginning of time?  If our final resting place has already been decided for us, then it is futile to try and resist it, and it is a lie to say we had any choice during time in the matter.
