Words foreordain and predestinate come from the same Greek word proordzo, meaning to determine beforehand. It is translated determined before ( Acts 4:28 ), predestinated ( Rom. 8:29, 30; Eph. 1:5, 11 ), and ordained (1 Cor. 2:7 ). In these passages we find that God predestinated Christ to die for the world ( Acts 4:28 ); that some [ it is not stated who or which ones ) would be saved by believing on Jesus as their Savior ( Rom. 8:29, 30 ); that those who would freely choose to be saved were predestinated to be holy and to be children of God through Christ ( Eph. 1:5 ); that these children of God have a predestinated inheritance according to the eternal purpose ( Eph. 1:11 ); that they were predestined to be enlightened with wisdom kept secret from of old ( 1 Cor. 2:7 ); but no statement is made that God's predestined plan and purpose includes the free acts of free moral agents nor does it name those who will conform to the plan. This means that God's law is the thing that is predestinated and not the individual conformity to it. All Scripture is clear that men are absolutely free to choose for themselves whether they conform to the predestined plan or not ( John 3:16-20; Rev. 22:17 ). Those that do conform will enjoy forever the predestined blessings and those who do not will suffer eternally the predestined judgments of the plan. This and this alone, is all that the Bible teaches concerning predestination in connection with free moral agents.
