On a thread in Current Events or Politics (can't recall which), the issue of Open Theism came up in relation to Gregory Boyd, who is an open theist and wrote about this in God of the Possible. Other Open Theists are Clark Pinnock and John Sanders. One of the responses to Boyd was So. Baptist Bruce Ware's God's Lesser Glory, in which he refuted Boyd's points pretty well. Open Theism states that God only knows the "possible future," not the entire future, and that he changes his mind. There are other things they say as well, but those are probably two of the major ones. This became an issue at the Evangelical Theological Society a couple of years ago or so, because some ETS members felt Open Theism violated the society's statement on biblical inerrancy. Both Pinnock and Sanders were ETS members. Although the ETS voted against accepting Open Theism in 2001 (see http://www.bpnews.net/bpnews.asp?ID=12210), the issue about whether ETS members who were Open Theists could remain in the ETS was undecided. So it was brought up for a vote, and ETS members decided in 2003 not to make it an issue of inerrancy, allowing Sanders and Pinnock to remain as ETS members. I think that Pinnock did make some changes in some of his statements in order to remain but I'm sketchy on this. Some ETS members who strongly disagreed, such as Norman Geisler, a past ETS President and member for 44 yrs., resigned from ETS as a result. This is Geisler's statement of why he resigned: http://www.ses.edu/NormGeisler/etsresign.htm This is an account of the challenge at ETS re Open Theism: http://www.etsjets.org/members/challenge/2003-challenge.html A Baptist posted on that thread re Boyd, asking "What's wrong with Open Theism?" So now's your chance to say why you agree or disagree with Open Theism.
