Molinism in perspective - Dr. James White in Southern California
10/22/2009 - Micah BurkeDr. James White will be speaking at Trinity Reformed Baptist Church in La Mirada, California on Friday night 10/23/09 at 6:30pm. The church is located at 14407 Rosecrans Ave. in La Mirada, 30 minutes south of Downtown Los Angeles, 20 minutes north of Disneyland, and 2 minutes west of Biola University.
The topic of Dr. White's lecture will be "Playing Around with Predestination" focusing on Molinism, Middle Knowledge and the theology of William Lane Craig. Admission is free.
Many Arminians seeking consistency in their understanding of the divine sovereignty and human freedom and culpability of man are turning to the philosophy of Molinism. Molinism, named after 16th Century Jesuit theologian Luis de Molina, is a religious doctrine which attempts to reconcile the omniscience of God with human free will. William Lane Craig is probably its best known non-Roman Catholic advocate today and it is his views that Dr. White will critique. What does God know and when does He know it? Does the God of the Bible resemble that of Molinism?
If you live in the Los Angeles basin and would like to know more about Molinism, the views of William Lane Craig and the freedom of the divine Potter over his creation, attend this special conference!
On Sunday morning Dr. White will be teaching at 10AM at the Sovereign Grace Baptist Church in Ontario (directions) and speaking in the morning worship service at 11am. That evening he will be speaking for the Quarterly Gathering of the Southern California Association of Reformed Baptist Churches, which will be meeting at Colony High School, 3850 W.
