    That's incompetent, irrelevant, and immaterial, impassible, impeccable, and immutable!


    This is the show from Tuesday, December 10th, 2019



    SUMMARY:





    * Jesus: Fully God and fully man so fully free! Was Jesus able to sin? Of course. Otherwise, He could not be fully man, and He could not be tempted, and His righteousness would not be praiseworthy, and He could not love, because love must be freely given. But He became fully man, and He was tempted, and He is praiseworthy, and He does love. So, the answer is, yes. Bob continues broadcasting the cross examination of Will Duffy during the recent debate Is Open Theism Biblical, and notes that when a Calvinist challenges open theist testimony from Scripture by asking if it would contradict God being "impassible, impeccable, and immutable", one could hear district attorney Hamilton Burger objecting as he did in a 1960s courtroom drama, that this line of questioning was "incompetent, irrelevant, and immaterial." For not the "living God" but a stone idol is impassible, impeccable, and immutable. Also, consider that folks have a difficulty discerning between time and the measurement of time. So too many have difficulty comprehending the difference bewteen the future as a concept and a moment in the future. The concept of the future doesn't change but what may or may not happen in any particular moment in the future is open. So too with truth. The concept of truth doesn't change, whereas whether a particular statement is true or false (like, "breakfast is served") of course can change. Open theists though frequently encounter these kinds of easily avoided misconceptions.

    * Clarifying Terms Future & Truth: Just as folks have a difficulty discerning between time and the measurement of time, so too many have difficulty comprehending the difference bewteen the future as a concept and a moment in the future. The concept of the future doesn't change but what may or may not happen in any particular moment in the future is open. So too with truth.

    Today's Resource: Open Theism Seminar


    Open theism seminar with Bob Enyart on three DVDs!


    (Filmed in Indianapolis) Another fantastic BEL seminar, this time, on the topic of Open Theism, answering the question, is the future settled or open? The Open View teaches that God can change the future. He interacts with the flow of history and changes the outcome of the future as it unfolds by His decisions and actions.

    * Recovering the Personal God: A BEL goal over the last 28 years has been to recover the personal God. Personhood is not only the right to life of every unborn child because those kids are made in God's likeness, but primarily and through eternity past, God Himself is a personal God, the one God existing in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Yet classical theology has turned God into more of a quantitative mathematical equation. We broadcast in part to correct all that!
