<1>There has been a great and long argument on this subject. Some say all are predestined, and others say man has choice.

<2>In truth both of them are correct. To demonstrate this, let us use an example:

<3>If we imagine that there is a king in a land and he rules the land with great authority and power, then all his subjects obey his will. So we can suppose that he has complete control over his people.

<4>However, if we consider his prime minister and a peasant in his kingdom, which one has more freedom of choice in his life?

<5>Of course the peasant does, because he can choose where he wants to live, how to spend his day, how to relate to others, etc.  <6>But the prime minister or those who are closer to the king, have a much smaller choice in these regards.  However, they have more power in the land.

<7>Furthermore, if the king willed some peasant to do something for him, such a person also loses his choice and has to follow the will of the king.

<8>Also those who know the will of the great king and follow it will lose their choices but will receive his mercy and come to be in his presence.

<9>This is also true between the human and the Father. Those who come close to Him lose their choices, because they have to follow His Will. <10>Those who do not follow His Will have choice but will not come close to Him. <11>Those whom He chooses to do His Will, knowingly or unknowingly, will do it, and those who do His Will, will go unto Him.

<12>As in a land there are laws which all have to follow and if they do not they will be punished, also there are Laws in the universe that all have to follow.

<13>So although those who are peasants in His Kingdom have the choice to choose, their choices are limited. <14>They cannot go against His Laws, but are freer than those who are closer to Him.

<15>Therefore, those who are close to Him, follow His Will or are chosen for a task, have their lives predestined. <16>But those who are neither close to Him, nor follow His Will, nor are chosen, have choice in their lives, and their choices shape their progress or otherwise.
