So how does prevenient grace fit in with Open Theism?
Is there any room in open theism for the traditional Arminian affirmation of the necessity of prevenient grace?
Reply to Anonymous:
Yes, though I don’t believe there is anything in open theism which logically entails the necessity of prevenient grace, all of us affirm it as necessary due to sin. On the whole, our view tends to line up with Wesley, and the Eastern Orthodox church on this matter.
