Open theism is a false teaching that attempts to explain God’s foreknowledge in relation to man’s free will. Open theism essentially teaches that God can’t actually know everything, for if He did, then man couldn’t truly be free.

Open theism denies the essential attributes of God, namely his omniscience, but also denies his sovereignty and Lordship over all Creation. It denies the power of God by implying that God could create a world and deny Himself the ability to know the final outcome of His creation, particularly as it comes to those who He would save. One cannot read the Word of God and come away with such a conclusion, though, and open theism is nothing more than an attempt to get around God’s sovereignty over salvation.

The crux of the false teaching here is the denial of God’s attributes clearly taught in the Scriptures, and this is why it has been rejected as such by the Church.

Yet, Leighton Flowers, in his never-ending quest to try to discredit Reformed theology and the sovereignty of God, has now stooped to the level of affirming open theism. Whether you’re Reformed, Traditionalist, or Arminian, it doesn’t matter, it’s clear that this guy has delved into extremely dangerous territory with his teachings and he should be avoided.
