This view has helped me comprehend prayer, evil in the world, my sense of freedom and prophecy in new and richer lights. Basically it says God ceated the world, granted GENUINE human freedom to mankind and is overseeing what that freedom is resulting in on a moment by moment basis. He cannot be often pleased, he suffers when we sin, he listens and reacts to our prayers, he intervenes regularly in subtle ways and occasionally in large dramatic ways (most prominently in Jesus Christ). But he is not the author/cause of all that happens as the Westminister Confession of Faith claims Article II (I believe) which paradoxically says God is not the author of evil after just having said he is the cause of all that happens. He does not know in detail what decisons we will make in the future. I believe it is what most Christians believe deep down in their hearts as demonstrated by their actions (and I've been around alot of fundamentalists, evangelicals, moderates, Reformed and to a lesser extent liberals, charismatics and Arminian types) The Bible (especially OT) supports this - claims of antromorphisms aside. It is inconsistent IMO to say God exhaustively knows the future and claim we have any true freedom of choice. God has excellent anticipation and can announce ahead of time how He plans to intervene. This explains most prophecies (of a foretelling nature) with most others being explained by the fact they are conditionally given (e.g. I will deport ya'll to Babylon if you don't behave). Peter's denials is really the ony example of a true foretelling of an apparently free human decision (tell of others if you know any that are not preannouncements of God's intention or conditional). Good reading on this is Open View of God (Clark Pinnock, etal), Most Moved Mover (Pinnock), God of the Possible (Greg Boyd), The God who Risks (John Sanders), etc. Refuting books include God Lesser Glory (Bruce Ware), No Place for Sovereignty (McGregor) and The Lord God Almighty (Millard Erickson). Many others as well -it seems to have struck a nerve! Note that the BF&M 2000 section of God was changed by our vanguards of truth (Mohler, etc.) to attempt to nip this in the bud (before it was thoroughly discussed). This is really a very exciting recovery from St. Augustine's over-incorportaion of Greek philosophy into the Chrstian tradition. Good read of this is The Story of Christian Theology (by Roger Olson) altoug it is long. What do ya'll think.
