“The religious conception is erroneous because man creates himself within a horizon of possibilities. This is not an objection to the approach that God wants man to be free. Christianity calls on people to be free, not to obey rules. For Bergson (20th century), man participates in the creative and ever-new evolution of the world; in the 21st century, Process Theology criticizes the possibility of God knowing the future and his omnipotence. There is co-creation of the universe by man and God, sometimes against God's will, who then contrives to reorient history through permanent interventions - see André Gounelle, Le dynamisme créateur de God. Such approaches articulate human freedom with the existence of a God who is very different from the traditional image of God.”
