"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations." I supposed this was God talking to Jeremiah. "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you" Does that mean that Jeremiah existed before fertilization occurred? If Yes,then in what form did Jeremiah exist before he was formed in the womb? "before you were born I set you apart,I appointed you as a prophet to the nations" So that clearly means even before Jeremiah was born,he was set apart as a prophet and he couldn't have been anything else But a prophet right? Obviously Yes,from a normal direct interpretation. So how then does Jeremiah has a choice to be anything else But a prophet? How does Jeremiah get to decide for himself what he wants to be If he has been predestined to be a prophet as clearly shown in the passage. Can I still say Jeremiah has freewill in deciding what he wants to be?
