According to Greek mythology, the Fates were 3 goddesses who weaved the destinies of mankind. A buddy asked “Am I a pawn doomed to God’s predetermined path for me?”
God’s not some finger-shaking Jedi master who controls His weak-minded Christian sheep. While He absolutely knows what’s best for us, He has given us the freedom of choice to obey or disobey Him. He’s given us His Holy Spirit to guide us in making good choices so that “[His] kingdom come, [His] will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.” Matthew 6:10.
