I made this post using My Facebook:

Calvinists mock Open Theists and say that if we were consistent in our “exegesis” it would mean that Jesus was literally a vine, etc. This is a false accusation. However, what would happen if the Calvinists were consistent in their hermeneutics?

“And he prayed unto the LORD, and said, I pray thee, O LORD, was not this my saying, when I was yet in my country? Therefore I fled before unto Tarshish: for I knew that thou art a gracious God, and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repentest thee of the evil.” Jonah 4:2

“Oh,” says the Calvinists, “God does not really repent. That is just anthropomorphic. God never actually repents.”

“Ok,” says the Open Theist, “then God is not really gracious, merciful, slow to anger, or great in kindness. That is just anthropomorphic. God is never actually gracious, merciful, slow to anger, or great in kindness”

Calvinist: “Wait. What? Opps!”

TheOpenTheistReformation

Open Theism is a theological reformation. This is a place where Open Theists can fellowship, debate, explain and defend the biblical doctrine of open theism. And a place where Open Theists can post various articles, materials and resources relating to the open view of the future.

For any of my fellow open theists, this Facebook group is for you!

  1. The Bible of the Calvinist:
    1. “And it repented the Lord NOT that he had made man on the earth” Gen. 6:6
    2. “the Lord repented NOT that he had made Saul king over Israel” (1 Sam. 15:35).
    3. “And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented NOT of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it.” Jonah 3:10
    In the Calvinist Bible, since God does not repent:
    1. Noah’s flood never happened
    2. David never replaced Saul as king
    3. Nineveh was overthrown in forty days
    I wonder, when are the reformed publishers going to print this new Bible, in which God does not repent?
