UNCHRISTIAN?

"which implies that anything can be random and out of the hands of God" Pre-destination and the direct control of God over the lives of men is not a Christian belief but one which only some protestant churches subscribe. To Catholics there is nothing sacrilegious about Luck.because all men are free.

I don't really understand what you mean. Is there anything wrong with the entry that should be changed? —CodeCat 12:38, 8 July 2011 (UTC)


The term Godspeed is not a NON-CHRISTIAN belief. Albeit an antiquated saying, no longer used by most, it merely implies and suggests for one to have a safe journey....arrive safely....bon voyage, etc., etc. To ascribe this to being anti-Christian is incorrect. May God ensure a safe passage for you on your dangerous journey or endeavor. To say that "Pre-destination and the direct control of God over the lives of men is not a Christian belief", is incorrect. God knows what is in store for us all, therefore that by it's own definition would take on the notion of pre-destination. Those chosen for the rapture have already been chosen....it says so in the Bible. Is that NOT a form of pre-destiny?? Yes, we have the free will to do as we choose...but God knows what we are going to do before it is done. Let's not overthink this one and make it into something it's not.

If that is true, then why was God sorry that He made Saul king? Surely, if God knows with certainty all our future actions as you say, then he must have known everything Saul was going to do wrong. --EncycloPetey (talk) 22:52, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
