God knows our past, present, and future. If God knows our future, does it follow that we are to believe in fate?

God knows the beginning and the end of each one's life. Knowing what is going to happen is very different from making it happen. Fate would imply He controls mankind and dictates what will take place in each one's life. He has given each a free will, we all make our own choices.

His offer of salvation through His son's sacrifice on the cross is a FREE gift. You can accept or reject the offer. Those who accept are destined to heaven and everlasting life with Jesus Christ. Those who reject are destined to be cast into the lake of fire, the second death.

Matt. 7:13-14
Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

2Cor. 6:2
For He says: “In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. 

We have no guarantee of tomorrow. Accept Jesus Christ today, right now!

It's your choice, not fate. What will your answer be?
