Frequently asked questions about molinism

Is Molinism biblical?

Yes. Scripture attests to God’s possession of middle knowledge and the existence of CCF’s (counterfactuals of creaturely freedom).

Didn’t Jacobus Arminius, the founder of “Arminianism”, believe in middle knowledge?

Yes, but what Arminius understood as “middle knowledge” was vastly different than the conclusion of Molina. Arminius believed God possessed middle knowledge after His divine creative decree, whereas the very basis of Molinism requires God to have possessed middle knowledge before His divine creative decree.

Which letters of T.U.L.I.P. do molinists believe in?

Molinist conclusions regarding the “letters” of T.U.L.I.P. vary greatly.
