English[edit]

Adjective[edit]

predestinative (not comparable)

  1. Determining beforehand; predestinating.
    • Samuel Taylor Coleridge
      The predestinative force of a free agent's own will in certain absolute acts, determinations, or elections, and in respect of which acts it is one either with the divine or the devilish will; and if the former, the conclusions to be drawn from God's goodness, faithfulness, and spiritual presence; these supply grounds of argument of a very different character []
