    In order to sin freewill is necessary, because the only way it is logically possible to sin is if you are free from God's control.
    But in order to obey an Omnicausal God freewill is not necessary. How can you logically disobey an Omnicausal God?
    God so sovereignly controls all events, both mental and physical, that we have no choice but to obey Him.

    From the mock poster: (emboldened emphasis mine)

    "In a world where freedom was outlawed.

    ...the dark forces Omniscience, Omnipresence, Omnipotence, Impassibility and Immutability closed in.

    Are you still free?
    "

    Have the open theists who promote views such as those quoted above even considered the consequences of their words? If God really turns out to be all of these things, how will he react to the characterization of his attributes as "dark"?

    I think He will when one uses his essential attributes to accuse him. Especially when the one doing so claims to be a Christian.

    Is there a Riff Trax on that one yet?
    For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another!
    Galatians 5:13-15

    That depends on whether HE gets so wrapped up in the Dogma which man surrounds HIM with that HE forgets to look at the Heart.......

    I don't think we have to worry about that.

    Seeing as how the Bible never says He is any of those things, we have nothing to worry about, Eli.

    Omnipresence

    Psalm 139:7-12 KJV
    Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me. Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

    1 Kings 8:27 KJV
    But will God indeed dwell on the earth? behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house that I have builded?

    Jeremiah 23:23-24 KJV
    Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off? Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.

    Acts 17:27-28 KJV
    That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

    Omniscience

    Hebrews 4:13 KJV
    Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

    Omnipotence

    Job 42:2 KJV
    I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee.

    Revelation 19:6 KJV
    And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.

    The heart is precisely what I'm talking about. There is a real difference between not understanding that God has the attributes of Omnipotence, etc., and claiming that these attributes are "dark forces". The former is error, the latter is presumptuous almost to the point of being blasphemy.

    None of those say that He either is present everywhere all at once, that He knows everything, even if it does not exist, or that He can do anything, even that which is against His character or attributes.

    Am I to understand you are a worthy Judge of mens hearts?

    If ones understanding of omnipotence is that it states GOD uses HIS Children as puppets on strings then you would be right in considering this to not be an attribute of OUR LORD and to claim such an attribute to be a dark force.

    Stop judging by mere appearences and make a right judgement.

    So tell me Eli....do those who lack understanding of the Trinity risk Judgement as well?

    (emphasis mine)

    that He knows everything, even if it does not exist,
    Perhaps not, but this one does.

    Matthew 11:21 KJV
    Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.

    or that He can do anything, even that which is against His character or attributes.
    Why would he do that which is against his character and attributes? That would contradict his omnipotence, not reinforce it.
