There is a somewhat popular, so-called doctrine in the world of Christendom called Open Theism that we’re looking at today. Its heritage is that it’s descended from a previously popular belief system known as Moral Government Theology, or MGT. As MGT became more widely known and discussed, it became clear that it was heretical, or as one theologian critically stated, it “must be classified not as a form of Christianity but as heathenism masquerading as Christianity.” That’s a serious indictment and well-earned, as we’ll see shortly. However, since MGT effectively gave birth to Open Theism, and this doctrine is prominent today in NAR circles, we need to investigate both of these theological ideologies to better understand what is being taught in some areas of Christianity.

Thus, answers are given to the world based on man’s ideas of what is best for humanity.
There is so much to learn from the trials, tribulations, and underlying apostasies of God’s children, Israel and Judah, when they turned away from Him in rebellion. When we read the Old Testament, we see that sinful people practice their sin regardless of who they are and in what earthly dispensation. As it was in ancient Israel, so it is today in America and the rest of the world.
The topic of angels, fallen angels, and aliens with their UFOs is of paramount importance in these last days. Going back to time immemorial, various peoples have seen unexplained aerial phenomena and encountered strange beings not of this earth. What are these novelties? What are the primary manifestations of the demonic today? Where do they lead?
It makes a difference who we listen to. This is true whether one is a king or a peasant, someone living in ancient times or an individual today. If people give us suggestions, what kind of discernment do we have to understand whether what is said is actually good counsel or bad counsel?
