In our weekly apologetics meeting, here we discuss Molinism which is a system of thought that seeks to reconcile the sovereignty of God and the free will of man. The heart of Molinism is the principle that God is completely sovereign and man is also free in a libertarian sense. Molinism partly seeks to avoid so-called “theological determinism”: the view that God decrees who will be saved or damned without any meaningful impact of their own free choice. Today’s highest-profile defenders of Molinism are William Lane Craig and Alvin Plantinga. Our guest is Dr. Tim Stratton who recently finished his dissertation on the topic. Tim has his own ministry called Free Thinking Ministries.
