I don’t like the idea of fate. I do believe there’s a God but honestly I thought we had free will. If there’s fate then the whole “meant to be” thing removes any sort of choice.
I was meant to start a blog GratuitousRex? If I get a x job, it’s meant to be. If I get y job, it’s meant to be. I’m 42 and single, it was meant to be. September 11th happened, it was meant to be?
You get the point. It sounds like a bunch of hogwash. Like God has time to go planning everything for all eternity. I know he’s God and omnipotent but come on, it unravels quickly. The Holocaust was meant to be? Man God would be a jerk. Why’d he let that happen?
Because he let’s everything happen. Because we act how we will.
It just sounds like an easy way to end a conversation you’re tired of having. “Hey I didn’t get that job?”
“Guess it just want meant to be.”
Both know knowingly.
“Say what are you doing for the Superbowl?”
