We Can Trust God with Free Will

Open Theism is the Christian doctrine that the future is not settled but open because God is alive, eternally free, and inexhaustibly creative. From our recent James White vs. Bob Enyart Open Theism Debate, this 2-minute video documents the shocking aftermath involving R.C. Sproul Jr. and James White: 


* James White's 2015 Article
: Six months later, James White wrote yet another article on this and as previously, he again failed to quote himself or R.C. Sproul Jr. in his defense of what they wrote. (A listener of both the BEL and Wretched talk shows had written Wretched's Todd Friel in January 2015 to ask him to urge his friend James White to retract his heretical denial of God the Son's two natures. Friel did forward the issue on to White, but insisted that there was nothing of this issue remaining to be answered.) However, on James White's Jan. 22, 2015 Facebook post, after initially blocking Enyart's question, Dr. White left this unanswered: "James White, do you affirm that the Second Person of the Trinity has both a divine and a human nature?"
