Hyper-Calvinists openly assert everything is predestine. Boettner says everything is predestined. But is that Biblical. No. This thread is not about Omniscience, no matter how it is defined. According to Arminianism, God knowing the future exhaustively does not predestine it. We must set aside this issue and stick with the scope of predestination. If everything is predestined, that is Closed Theology and God is the Author of Sin, just as the Hyper-Calvinisms claim. If everything is not predestined, that is Open Theology to a limited degree, and God knowing the future exhaustively does not change that everything is not predestined according to Arminianism. Therefore all Arminians and most Calvinists are open theists to a limited degree. Skandelon did not answer these questions. I will because I can support my views from scripture. Yes Jesus said what Peter would do. And as I have posted numerous times, Jesus can know what is in the hearts of people and therefore know how they would react given a circumstance. Thus Jesus knew what Peter would freely choose to do given that circumstance. Did Jesus declaring what would happen fix the future? Yes, no plan of God can be thwarted, if even if Peter had been altered so his response would have differed, God would have brought about the denials anyway. But the real issue is why did Skandelon ask this off topic question? Because he does not understand my view. It would be nice if only posts that answer the question, is everything predestined be allowed.
