Another snag in Christian Theology is the concept of ‘predestination’; the notion that God decided who goes to heaven and who goes to hell before we were ever born, and we can do nothing about it.
Romans 8: 28: "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. 29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. 30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified."
While it kinda-sorta sounds like predestination, to accurately interpret the verse, one must understand the concept God’s foreknowledge; that He knows all things before they happen.
I choose the following interpretation:
God knows who will accept Him and who will reject Him, and even though real Christians may goof-up, if we become born-again,
He protects us and guides us through life to our final heavenly destination.
