In this seminar, Dr. John Frame addresses the topic of Open Theism as it relates to God’s knowledge of the future. Exploring the origins of this theology, Frame describes the misunderstanding of God’s love apart from his other divine attributes, and the inclination to exert our free will over the sovereignty, foreknowledge, and divine will of God.

For anyone who has run into the confounding and meticulous obfuscation that comes of interacting with this theology this podcast is for you. This is an excellent summary and a good ground for building upon your studies into open theism.
Dr. Frame presents a very objective view of Open Theism and does an excellent job showing that it is both irrational and not in the slightest bit Biblical. He also does a great job presenting the concept of the Libertarian Free Will. In my experience with Christians, this is the view that most of them will hold, even if they can't articulate it or don't have a term for it. He does an excellent job of showing that the concept of Libertarian Free Will is illogical and the logical conclusion of the concept show that individuals cannot be accountable for their actions. Open Theism is becoming more and more pervasive among evangelical churches. I would highly recommend this to anyone struggling with the issue themselves or who are dealing with others that hold the view.
