One of the stated purposes of this blog from the very beginning has been dialogue and debate. As you might guess from the content you read at High Mileage Hermeneutics, I am not an Open Theist. What I would like to promote in these postings is biblical, considerate, and informed dialogue. The first post (below)in this series has been written by Dan Smitley, a friend and peer of mine at Ashland Theological Seminary, from the standpoint of Open Theism. What follows is dialogue. As the conversation continues, feel free to join in the discussion. Your thoughts are welcome! All respectful comments will be posted.
