Predestination? And... The Narrow Way!

To those who believe in predestination, I will show you correctly what it is; so read this (I am not teaching Calvinism, but rather am teaching what "Predestination" ought to be...  And the Narrow Way is found at the bottom of this page):

Romans 8:28-29

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

I will sum up predestination in a few verses, as it is written,

John 12:32

And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.”

1 Corinthians 8:3

But if anyone loves God, this one is known by Him.

You see?  Those that love God are known by Him, therefore they are whom He foreknew as stated in Romans 8:29.

But it still remains that all righteousness must be fulfilled so now I will post the following:

John 14:21

He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”

But consider as it is written,

Romans 5:19

For as through the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the One the many will be made righteous.

(Do PLEASE read the Page labeled:  "My Absolute Favorite Verse" to know the full mystery of Romans 5:19)

Finally consider this:

Matthew 7:13-14

 “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. 14 For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.

Now I will ask a question...  Which path were YOU on before you were placed on the narrow way?

Behold the Narrow Way says the Preacher!

Ecclesiastes 7:15-18

15 I have seen everything in my days of vanity:

There is a just man who perishes in his righteousness,
And there is a wicked man who prolongs life in his wickedness.
16 Do not be overly righteous,
Nor be overly wise:
Why should you destroy yourself?
17 Do not be overly wicked,
Nor be foolish:
Why should you die before your time?
18 It is good that you grasp this,
And also not remove your hand from the other;
For he who fears God will escape them all.
