1. For the open theists 1 John 4:8 is the interpretive center of the Bible: "From a Christian perspective, love is the first and last word in the biblical portrait of God. According to 1 John 4:8: “whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” The statement God is love is as close as the Bible comes to giving us a definition of the divine reality" ("Biblical Support," inThe Openness of God: A Biblical Challenge to the Traditional Understanding of God , p. 18). 2. Here's Dr. Boyd: “God is an eternal triune dance of love who eternally displays structure and freedom. His creation, which he invites to join his dance, manifests the same balance of structure and freedom. The now-debunked teaching that God has a detailed plan for the future of both individuals and society.” 3. So, God and man are taking an adventure in love into the unknown future--not even God knows what that is going to look like. ***Edited.
