I'm the user formerly known as md5sum, for those who wonder.

Currently, I'm a developer in the Property & Casualty Insurance division of Accenture Software.

I started playing with GWBASIC on our Commodore Colt at around 5 years old, and it was all downhill from there. I have now been programming professionally since 2005 and have several more years of part-time/freelance programming under my belt as well.

Currently, I'm specialized in C#, ASP.Net 2.0, and MSSQL, but my work experience is quite broad, including C++, PHP, Javascript, WPF, VB6, VB.Net, ASP.Net, MySQL, and I've dabbled in many others.

My point is not to argue or debate you at all. My point is to try and get you to introduce references into your position. As I stated in my answer, the belief that predestination is true or false is only clear to the person who holds that belief. The only thing you've presented is a flawed chain of logic (and I don't say it's flawed because I don't agree with it, I say it's flawed because you're jumping to very far conclusions of what must be believed to believe in predestination, and even stating a position held true by the Bible in point 2 of your argument against the viewpoint).

Is God the creator of everything? If you accept that God created everything, then you must also accept that God created evil. Otherwise, it simply wouldn't exist.

From the Lord's Prayer (Matthew 6:10) - "Thy will be done on earth, as it is in Heaven" states that God's will is done in Heaven. Yet, Lucifer led a revolution against God, and Revelation 12:7 says "There was war in Heaven". So, is God's will done in Heaven, as Jesus stated in The Lord's Prayer? If so, then the revolt of Lucifer and his followers was God's will, which ultimately led to the downfall of man. Acting against God's commands is not equal to acting against the will of God.

Nothing you can do CAN save you... this breaks the second link in your chain of logic. How you got from nothing I can do being able to save me (a Biblical truth) to God creating evil people is unclear as well.

Can you provide any sort of Scriptural basis for this theory?

@Jared - By this time when Jesus was praying, Judas had already made his decision, and soon went and hung himself. Would you say that he was saved or lost? If he was lost, then Jesus lied saying he had kept all that were given Him, unless Judas was not given him to save, in which case he was still doomed to be lost.

@Jared - The JW's don't believe there is a limited number of people who will be saved, they only believe that there will be a limited number who go to Heaven, and will in turn reign on earth from the New Jerusalem.

So you're saying that if you don't believe while alive, you die and go to hell, where you're given another chance to accept Him and go to Heaven?

@Mason - Actually, in the Greek, it's not just "the one", but rather specifically, the "son of perdition", or υἱός ἀπώλεια which is very literally the offspring of/for destruction. It was a very specific person for a very specific purpose.
