Hello, I am a cradle Catholic, 58 old. If God called us into existence from nothing, He must have known where our final destination would be. I know about free will and that God does not want robots and all of the other standard answers. God knows everything. All of it.At once. He knows his whole plan. It is His plan. If Before He pulled someone out of nothingness He knew that individual was bound for hell. Why would He bother. In Christ, Rick13
