On Open Theism …

​In terms of Open Theism, and in terms of logic, I’m left guessing why people had thought throughout time that having a plan necessarily entails to all events which happen in time being controlled by the agent exercising his will, trying to fulfill the plan. What I mean is that most people are planners yet no one would ever hear that “Johnny plans on …” and naturally think as a result that Johnny’s plans must then be fully determined or it won’t come to fruition.

Why have we thought it natural about God?

Jokingly, if God’s plan was utter chaos in the universe, would God even be able to attain it? It’s logically possible, however, the fault making it a paradox is this idea that God’s plans must be deterministic, and chaos by definition …

Simply, if God’s plan is a participatory pedagogy with man for the revelatory well-being of humanity, what necessarily demands that all events in time are determined in order to accomplish it, and more, participation implies a necessity quite contrary to this idea of determinism.

    I get that. Human accounting of human experiences is a good thing. 🙂

    That makes sense to me. The only thing I question is the exclusively anthropocentric view. Is there room for a theocentric perspective within what you’ve called “participatory pedagogy?”
