Are we predestined?

Dean of the College of Theology Jason Hiles, PhD, and University Pastor and Dean of Students Tim Griffin join Grand Canyon University student Ashley Romantic to answer question this week’s Trending Faith question.

“We’re not good about things we don’t understand,” said Pastor Tim, addressing the human need to being okay with not having all of the answers.

This topic has been one of debate for many centuries, but the mystery of it all is due to our very limited understanding of how vast God is and how this delicate balance is able to work.

“There is a mystery of how [an all-knowing God and free will] work together, and it has to do with our limited understanding,” explained Dr. Hiles.
