I am a United Church of Christ member. Ever since I was a child I have had thoughts about determinism, even before I knew the term. I thought that everything is caused by something else. The decisions we make are based upon everything that has influenced us in the past. Are there other UCCers who feel this way?
Was there some of this thinking in the German Evangelical, Reformed, Congregational, and Christian Connection predecessors bodies of the UCC?
I'm not saying that other people are wrong. I've simply had this leaning since I was a child.
I was involved in an informal discussion and someone asked me how I reconcile this with my faith. I never found them to be incompatible. They also found my belief to be disturbing and possibly dangerous.
