The Bible teaches the doctrine of predestination in several passages, particularly in the New Testament letters of Romans and Ephesians. According to this doctrine, God has predestined or chosen certain individuals for salvation before the foundation of the world.
In Romans 8:29-30, Paul states that "those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified." This passage suggests that God has a plan for salvation that he is working out, and that those who are chosen by him will ultimately be saved.
Ephesians 1:4-5 states that "God chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will." This passage suggests that God has chosen certain individuals for salvation and has predestined them to be adopted as his children through faith in Jesus Christ.
It's important to note that the doctrine of predestination is a complex and controversial topic, and different Christian traditions have different interpretations of it. Some believe in the absolute predestination, meaning that God has predestined certain individuals for salvation and others for damnation, others believe in the conditional predestination, meaning that God has predestined certain individuals for salvation only if they meet certain conditions such as faith in Jesus Christ.
It's also worth mentioning that predestination does not negate free will and human responsibility, as those predestined to salvation are predestined to believe in Jesus Christ and follow him.
