What is Predestination?

In Christian theology, predestination is the belief that God has predetermined all events, usually with regard to the individual’s ultimate fate. Predestination explanations frequently attempt to resolve the “paradox of free will,” in which God’s omniscience appears irreconcilable with human free will. Predestination can be considered a sort of religious determinism in this context, and predeterminism, also known as theological determinism, is commonly used.
