Questions like, "Does God know the future?" or "Is God outside of time?" have been asked for thousands of years. These questions are important to our faith and to our understanding of Christ. GodsFreeWill.com is obviously pro Open Theism, but we don't want you to just agree because we say so. The nature of the future has been seriously debated by theologians and scholars and pastors etc. and a consensus seems to be nowhere in sight. However that shouldn't stop us from searching for the truth. We've compiled Open Theism debates that are both enjoybale and edifying to watch. Regardless of your beliefs on open theism, remember that the opposing side is not your enemy, they are belivers who love the Lord and wish to serve Him. We're all on the same team in our search for truth.

There is one God, the Trinity (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen. One day God will resurrect the dead, punish the unbelievers and reward those whom He has justified. With His saints He will judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
The Bible is the infallible living word of God and its treasures cannot be exhausted in a million lifetimes. It records the true history of man including that God created us in His image and likeness, He made the heavens and the earth and everything in them in six literal days, making us male and female from the beginning of the creation and instituted marriage between a man and a woman. Only eight people survived a global flood, and through great wonders God delivered Israel from Egypt. The prophets, Christ, and the apostles performed many supernatural miracles.
For us and for our salvation Jesus came down from heaven: by the Holy Spirit He became incarnate from the virgin Mary, and was made man. For our sake He was crucified under Pontius Pilate; He suffered death and was buried as payment for humanity’s sin. On the third day He rose again, defeating death in accordance with the Scriptures; He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. God established the Body of Christ into which the Holy Spirit baptizes every new believer. God offers salvation by grace through faith alone in the resurrected Christ.
God legislated morality out of love for His creation including the prohibition of intentionally killing the innocent. Men who reject God deserve and will suffer eternal damnation. Christ commands His followers to rebuke and to judge with righteous judgment. We are obliged to abhor the evil in the world. We believe homosexuality is an abomination to the Lord and that abortion is the murder of innocent children, any who might advocate otherwise are not welcome in our circles. We hate those who hate the Lord, we despise those who rise up against Him. We hate them with perfect hatred and count them as our enemies. We are called to forgive those who repent and accept them as brothers and sisters in the Lord.
We are unashamed of our faith, unashamed of the gospel, unashamed of Christ and we are devoted to spreading His message of redemption to all the world. In Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.
