- So, will there be free will in heaven?
- But it seems our environment and our past decide our actions, what do we mean by free will? Do we mean uncoerced?
- Did Jesus have free will?
- What about verbal plenary inspiration? Wouldn’t that thwart man’s free will?
God & time
the grace of God verses the will of man
- So how does prevenient grace fit in with Open Theism?
- Do we choose God?
- If man in any way chooses God, isn’t that merit on man’s part?
- If God controls everything, isn’t his foreknowledge a moot point?
- How is God sovereign if he is not in total control?
- Are all Open Theists also Inclusivists?
- Doesn’t speaking of God in relation to other beings make him finite?
- What about the problem of natural evil?
- Does God simply choose to limit his knowledge?
- Is Open Theism essentially an Evangelical thing?
- Are any Reformed theologians sympathetic to or proponents of open theism?
- Is God confined by logic?
Thomas Jay Oord I understand what Rick is getting at, but I don't think I buy it. How can God's objectives be fulfilled and yet individuals be lost forever? I'd say one of God's main objectives is that all will be saved. To put it another way, it would be a real shame if God has objectives that don't include the redemption of all creation. It would be kind of like the shepherd saying, "Hey, I've got 99 sheep, why go looking for the lost one?"
