It doesn't matter what you do on earth as long as your soul is safe with God, that's predestination.

Do I paint too blacker a picture of predestination? What do you think?

I don't think you have made too grim of an assessment. It is basically saying that what you do doesn't matter, because you are already saved or damned as it is.

Predestination is more like Darth Vader throwing the Emperor into the great abyss on the Death Star.

fate and destiny are often confused which bring up strange ideas like predestination to allow people who have no knowledge on the subject to have a jaded, yet, concrete clue of the idea.

Fate would be the better word to use in this scenario.

Imagine balancing a ruler in the middle horizontally

the ruler is literally everything. the beginning, the ending, you, me, and everything in-between.

The ruler is fate.

Destiny is where your hand is, it is right now.

Now is all that matters

However, fate can be thrown askew, convicted, or imagined.

Now, you ask about pre-destiny? Sounds lifeless, still, in the dark...demons

it's still here, as well as there, before, and without.

Yes, but it is immaterial.

i suppose
but the way i see it, material as a blank sheet of paper that hasn't been written on...
...where was i going with this
oh, you labeled eternity as immaterial.
sure, it may not be as concrete as you like to think
but i think it can be ;)
