Go Deep — Free Will vs. Divine Preordination

I post­ed this on an old blog, and even though it has been moved to a semi-secret bunker of archival good­ness, I’m still notic­ing skads of refer­rals point­ing to this gem of a car­toon, so I’m repost­ing it here. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, the Fox­Trot archive seems to no longer have a copy of this com­ic, which appeared 2006/11/07.

So, with­out fur­ther ado, here’s the car­toon (© Bill Amend):

Jason Fox, prepar­ing to pass a football:
Go deep.

If Bat­man died, would the Jok­er be happy?

As Charles H. Spur­geon said, “Free will car­ried many a soul to hell, but nev­er a soul to heav­en” (source).
