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.

There are a number of NAR end-times beliefs that have puzzled and disturbed me as I’ve come across them through comments made by those who have watched or read some of my Prophecy Updates or Commentaries. One such belief really threw me for a loop when I first saw it. Now that I’ve studied it a little more, I understand where the idea comes from, i.e. why people have it, although I steadfastly disagree with the concept.
We’ve discussed NAR on numerous occasions – the New Apostolic Reformation – and pointed out the many problems with this worldwide movement., which mostly manifests in Pentecostal and Charismatic churches.
