Religion and fate
A blind and inexorable fate can lead to a conflict with the belief in a benevolent providence.
It’s believed generally in the world that there is predestination.
What is Predestination??
What is salvation??
salvation is the deliverance of humankind from such fundamentally negative or disabling conditions as suffering, evil, finitude, and death. In some religious beliefs, it also entails the restoration or raising up of the natural world to a higher realm or state. The idea of salvation is a characteristic religious notion related to an issue of profound human concern.
What is fate?
Fate is the development of events outside a person’s control, regarded as predetermined by a supernatural power.
Followers of Christianity consider God to be the only force with control over one’s fate and that He has a plan for every person.
While the Bible does talk of destiny, it is usually a destined outcome based upon our decisions.
When people say that they have a fate or destiny, they really mean that they have no control of their own lives and that they are resigned to a certain path that cannot be changed. The concept gives control over to God
However, other Bible verses remind us that God may know the plans He has for us, but we do have some control over our own direction.
Jeremiah 29:11 – “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
Fate in Islam known as Qadar
The Muslims also believe in destiny
The “knowledge of destiny” is great knowledge not granted to unbelievers. It is by means of this knowledge that Muslims are able to display such splendid fortitude in the face of all difficulties and tests in the life of this world.
Qur’an says: “No kind of calamity occurs except by Allah’s permission. Whoever believes in Allah, He will guide his heart. Allah has knowledge of all things.” (Qur’an, 64:11) Believers enjoy the ease and comfort of knowing that everything befalling them is destined to do so.
As a great blessing, Allah has made trials easy for believers. But this applies to genuine believers who resign themselves to destiny. A Muslim who truly believes and who sincerely submits himself to Allah watches the constant change of images before him with excitement, in hope that Allah (God) ease whatever comes their way.
A Muslim aware of the fact of destiny and who grasps this secret of the test, regards all difficulty, hunger or poverty, as positive things and takes great pleasure from them. Because he knows that the moral values he displays in the face of this test are very valuable in the sight of Allah
Hindus believe in reincarnation. The basic belief is that a person’s fate is determined according to his deeds. These deeds in Hinduism are called ‘Karma’. A soul who does good Karma in this life will be awarded a better life in the next incarnation.
However, Hinduists beliefs are contradictory
- Hinduism has so many beliefs that it is overwhelming. You can find all kinds of beliefs in it.
- Everything happens because of fate.
- Everything happens through free will.
- Fate is the part of karma that is already under effect. So it is unavoidable.
- No, through god’s grace, even fate can be overcome.
- Man has freedom up to an extent. Rest is fate.
- Life itself is an illusion. All this is in the mind.
- Fate and free will exist for the Ego. Overcome the ego and you will be free of both.
- Free will and fate.
Free will relates to our exercise of will when performing actions in the present, whereas fate is the sum total of the effect of past actions that influence our present life. Exercise of free will in the past becomes our fate in the present. In a broader sense, free will and fate are not separate.
Difference between fate and freewill
Destiny(fate) is something you did not have much choice over. For example, the country, place, the family you were born into, the siblings you have, or the accidents that happen unknowingly.
Free will is something that you can decide and choose like the person you get married to. etcetera.
With free will, you believe that you have a separate mind from God and all your thoughts are self-generated. You are the ultimate commander of self and everything you do was done because you chose to do it.
With destiny, you believe that you do not have a separate mind from God.
Free will is the idea that some ‘little you’re inside separate from your brain is directing decisions and brain activity, rather than decisions just happening due to brain activity as a consequence of nature, nurture, and physical law.
