Many may not be familiar with the term “Open Theism.” It’s a fairly recent development (last 20 years) in theological circles, attempting to explain how God’s sovereignty and man’s “free” will work together.
It’s also HERESY.
What it comes down to in the end is that God doesn’t know the future, of His own choice. Instead, He limits Himself to being a constant “responder” to the various choices that His “free” creatures make… even having to “guess” at times what is best to do. Some authors supporting this theology even say God makes mistakes at times.
Anyway… here’s a great article about the subject, written by a guy who used to hold the view, but has since turned back to a more Biblical view of God and His sovereignty! Enjoy!
