To my human brain, pre-destination (as in Romans 8:14-9:22) seems to cancel out God's claim that we are free. At the same time, I am ale to comprehend that His Omniscient All-Knowing must mean He knows NOW how each one's free choice will turn out. I get that He sits beyond the constraints of time, so He must be already seeing the tapestry as finished.
Such is my puzzlement about "pre-destination." What think you?!?
