Fatalism in Islam.
Al-Qadr is the Muslim belief that Allah has decided everything that will happen in the world and in people’s lives, which is also called predestination. Most Muslims believe that humans cannot choose to do something if Allah has not already chosen that path for them.
This sounds like what some christians believe about the Christian God.
I do not believe this to be true. The Bible is full of examples of God presenting choices for a person to make.
The Tree of Knowledge
Cain gave the option to worship God in a way that will be accepted.
God gives Isreal a choice to choose life and blessing or death and curses.
I could list hundreds of examples of these kinds of choices that are clearly explained by God through the prophets, Jesus Christ taught this sort of choosing and calling to those who would obey and even the Apostles demonstrate this kind of command that brings the benefit of God’s blessing and salvation.
For anyone to believe in this Christian Fatlaism they must suspend and discount the whole body of Scripture that demonstrates God giving us free will is the fundamental dynamic between mankind and God.
In the final letter of the Bible, Jesus warns seven times those believers in the seven cities if they don’t repent, they will be judged, but if they do repent they will be given glorious blessings.
Choose this day who you will serve.
Serve yourself and experience sadness and trouble.
Serve God and experience joy and purpose.
You can make a difference because of the Grace of God living, walking, talking and living in and through faith.
I read the back of the book, and I know how the story ends.
You and I get to determine which book matters the most to us in the end.
The Lambs book of life, or the other books.
