The key difference between Christians and the rest of the world is that we no longer consider ourselves the masters of our own fates and the captains of our own destinies, because Jesus Christ is now our Master and Captain. However, even many Christians struggle with the idea that not only does God tell us what to decide, but He also has already decided for us. Many true Christians chafe at the idea of predestination, as it applies to decisions we must make regarding both our earthly and eternal destinies. We all know that God predestined us to be born. Where the friction starts is on whether God predestined us to be born again. We come now to the second unbreakable link in the Golden Chain of God's sovereign saving grace: that He has predestined us.
