Many seem to think that this day has a cloud hanging over it. Of course the movie series only enhances this view. My state case began on Friday the 13th. I was shipped from Santa Rita to Utah on Friday the 13th. Being in the SHU this day and my past experience could certainly make that suggestion to me.
I think this way is really the philosophical thought of fate. Fate was kind of the God behind all gods of the Panel in Greek mythology. Even Zues was subject to the force. If I were to adopt this thought in any incremental fashion I would have to do so at the expense of faith. If anything can be considered fatalistic it would have to be the word of God because He does not lie. Unfortunately fate in practice by us is doubt because it ignores the connection between faith and the activation and implementation of God’s word. It is an immutable substance that doesn’t become what is truly intended until faith is blended like an epoxy. The independent freewill objects become a third and new object by their joinder. Certainty attaches at this point but not fate.
I have sensed by comments that many think fate has somehow fixed the outcome of the Dorean process. To me it has been more like warfare that has an outcome determined by the participants. Loyalties, wisdom, weapons, measures and counter measures, and choices seem related to cause and effect. I don’t think the FBI believes in fate. They seem very active with goals independent of my own. I believe the prayers, fasting, and faith of us all has a role in determination. The Word of God has a prophetic set of rails to guide us if we will follow that will cause us to pass through our destination. Faith is our call, fate is for apathetic cowards. Look to the certainty of God’s faithfulness and not the myth of fate.
