The destruction of destiny and fate...

Jacques Ellul notes:

"...once Christianity had destroyed the idea of destiny or fate the poor realised that … their condition was not inevitable" (The Subversion of Christianity pp 113)

I’m just trying to get my head around this one. Mission’s 'soteriological' role in destroying the idea of destiny or fate seems pretty significant to me.

"...you know life doesn’t have to be like this..."
