Something new about myself

I always thought I was an American. And I always thought I was a Christian.

According to Beth, though, I'm actually a Molinist.

I'm still scratching my head over this one.

Sorry Dan, perhaps I was a bit over-eager...but on Abet you DID say:

"God isn't 'trying his best,' God has already done all
the work necessary. But God will not force anybody to move against their own
will. This does not mean that the will of the creature is omnipotent; just
that God will not choose to force the creature to go where the creature does
not want to go."

It was that combination of libertarian freedom ("God will not choose to force the creature")and the idea that "God has already done all the work that is necessary" that made me think you you'd make a fine Molinist.
But hey, no pressure. (At least, not from God!)

: )

There's got to be some funny t-shirt out there for those of us who think old Luis was on to something...what do you suppose it might look like?

God knows Molinism isn't a terminal condition. It could have been a lot worse.
