A Five-Year-Old’s Refutation of Open Theism

One morning several years ago, I was perusing an article about Open Theism, and my five-year-old daughter walked up and asked me what I was doing. I told her I was reading an article about the Bible. Then I asked her, “Jessica, do you think God knows for sure what will happen tomorrow?” She chuckled at the silliness of the question—as if to say “of course”—and said, “Yeah, He knows everything.” Then, after a brief pause, she added, “And He knows everything right now.”
