Predestination in a broad sense is similar to fate. In Christianity, it is particularly used in relation to salvation and is a contentious doctrine - the doctrine maintains that God predestined some to eternal life, not because He saw that they would have believed on their own, but because of His own good pleasure. Likewise God chose to save some despite their rejection of Him, not because they would be cooperative. God chose to change the hearts of some (the elect), and he has done so and will continue to do so until all of his elect are gathered.
