I have heard it said that God has predestined some for election (heaven) and has predestined others for reprobation (eternal damnation). Is this true? And if so, what passages in Scripture are used to support it? And what does it mean for us? Do we have personal choice? Can we really decide to follow Christ if we have been predestined for reprobation? Does it even matter how we live or what we do?
Has God chosen some for heaven and some for hell? If so, does it even matter how we live?
