    I don't mind if you want to delete this thread, not at all. But can i at least get an answer to my question? Is this forum different? Or are the same personal attacks allowed here?

    You've seen the list of names i've been called. How would you feel if you were on the receiving end of that for simply copying a definition out of the strongs and vines? And then be misrepresented as someone who is argumentative? I don't want to waste my time if this forum is run the same way.

    TOL can be a pretty rough place. It isn't policed quite as rigidly as some forums. But in the theology club the rules are different. Folks cannot attack the poster. They have to attack the post itself. Here are the rules to this section.

    However...

    To remain in the theology Club you will need to be able to play well with others. The Theology Club is for folks who do not wish to bicker, fight, play games, obfuscate, or otherwise present themselves as a distraction to the discussion.

    Thread derailment will NOT be tolerated. Stay on topic!!!

    The Open View Theology Forum is a PRO-openness theology forum. In other words this forum is intended to primarily discuss Open View theology from the perspective that it is the correct biblical view. That does not mean that the view cannot be questioned or debated, instead it simply means this forum will not be a place for settled view proponents to grandstand or monopolize the forum or mock the position that this forum represents.

    If a person is not following the above stated rules they will be removed from the Theology Club and will no longer be able to make posts in this forum.

    Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

    Does open theism only pertain to the future, and how God relates to that future? Or does open theism apply to all facets of the God man relationship?

    Open Theism is about whether or not you have free will or is
    everything predestined with no choice.

    I believe certain major Biblical things are predestined and will happen, and on everyday minute details and the lives we live we have free will.
    1 Corinthians 15:1-2 KJV - 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 KJV -


    Colossians 1:13-14 KJV - Colossians 1:15-16 KJV - Colossians 1:17-18 KJV -

    Colossians 1:19-20 KJV - Colossians 1:21-22 KJV - Colossians 1:23 KJV -

    Colossians 1:25-26 KJV 27, 28, 29 - Ephesians 1:7 KJV - Ephesians 1:12-13, 14 -

    There's no free will in a vacuum. But we are "given" the freedom to choose what we are going to serve. There's only two choices. God and submitting ourselves to Him, or Satan and submitting ourselves to Him. Both are continuous choices.

    was Jesus rejection by his chosen people and for them not to receive their kingdom predestined or free will.



    Mat 24:34 Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.

    No freewill in a vacuum, means we are being sucked to certain death, physically. No freewill can change that, and only changing that fact would be the only freewill worth talking about, earthly speaking that is.

    so no free will because of physical death
    There's only two choices. God and submitting ourselves to Him, or Satan and submitting ourselves to Him. Both are continuous choices.
    but continuous
    free will to choose who to submit to God or satan


    No freewill can change that, and only changing that fact would be the only freewill worth talking about, earthly speaking that is.
    so does your choices of who to submit to lengthen or shorten your days you have here ?

    Seeing i don't know the will of God concerning His future for me, i would have to say it wouldn't matter either way, when i surrender my life to Christ, it's no longer my life anymore.

    I'm curious, whats the relevance?
