It's refreshing to know an agnostic theist.

I already know this but I'd like to hear what the forum thinks about your thoughts on free will and fate.

Scratch a Christian and you will find an agnostic.

All the other Christians appear to still be around. Perhaps he truly was the chosen "one"?

As a theist, I've thought about this so I'll answer:

01. The primary cause is the ability to do so. Faith in God is an active concept, and I do not think nearly as many as people who claim to be religious are "faithful," per sè. When individuals can participate in public and social circles, and intellectual concepts, independently of an outward expression of faith, more will.
02. I do think it is good to have the ability to explore the world independent of religious identity. Perhaps many of the dissonnace among religions is a direct result of the attachment of religion to government, or science, or association. Utlimately, it might really result in clarifying what faith really is.

1) Non-theological answer: the ease of information accessibility / the continued publisized of Christian corruption / people wanting to break away from traditional restraints
theological answer: God's elect are becoming fewer and fewer

2) Based on my belief in predestination; it is of no real concern to me. This is the ebb and flow of God's plan.

Huh?

You may as well be saying "It is because it is that which it is as it is." just as ultimately unfulfilling an answer. But I like my version more 'cause it doesn't assume a deity...

RE: Ask a Theist!
I think the idea of "a predestination god" is a pretty evil one, really. The idea that ONLY a few are chosen and the vast majority "damned", . . . and "for his glory" . . . . is evidence of this. I wouldn't want to be "a chosen" in such a scenario. It would mean that I would HAVE to agree with that "vast majority being damned" [and depending on the denomination, how they will spend an eternity], . . . and I could never find peace, joy, or love in knowing so many are in that situation as a result OF "the god I was chosen by". Plus, . . . that "chosen" . . . .doesn't really explain what that "eternal chosen life" will be like. That isn't written. What would be an act that this type of god "would be glorified in"?
