As I’ve said before, objections to Open Theism don’t come from Scripture. Typically classical theists ignore the Scripture used by open theists and argue in other ways. So while I consider those other ways less important, they aren’t completely invalid, and I will address some of the most common objections here: why is it such a minority view in church history? why don’t we accept the idea that God changing his mind or emotions is simply anthropomorphic poetry? why do we think God can’t know future free actions? and the biggest one, is this not limiting God?
Some object to open theism on the basis of it being a minority view throughout history. That is very true, although there have been some theologians who have defended it. The first response from the Protestant view is that even if they do disagree, Scripture always trumps church tradition. If it is as clear in Scripture as I argued it is in my post on the biblical arguments for open theism, then church history is secondary. But another interesting thing to note is that classical theism has never been a part of any major creed of the church. Although the majority of theologians believed it, it has never been an official position of the church, so even for those traditions that hold the early councils as authoritative, there is no conflict.
