Some Choices Within

Colored Balloons on StringsThe relationship between God and human beings has been described in terms of a child holding a balloon on a string. If God is the child holding the balloon string and we are within that balloon it is true to say that we have some choices within that confined space but God determines the way we will go. The direction and speed of the balloon is determined completely by the one who holds the string. You have choice in your life decisions but the overall direction for you and me is predetermined by God. This is known in theological terms as Calvinism and has been the basic belief of the Church of England since the Protestant Reformation of which it was a part.✞
