A doctrine that teaches God not only knows the future, but also what people will freely choose to do in all possible situations.

Molinism states that God not only knows everything that happens and will happen, but also that He knows what people would freely choose to do in all scenarios. It is named after Luis de Molina, a 16th century theologian, and notably supported by William Lane Craig and Alvin Plantinga, among others, today.
