The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah often evokes images of a closed God who acts unilaterally in judgment. This article, however, will argue for an Open God who collaborates with creation towards a unique future. This article is intended to make a small contribution to recent Pentecostal engagement with Terence E. Fretheim’s Relational Theology. Part 1 is a discussion of the Open God in Pentecostal context. Part 2 is a close reading of the Sodom Cycle with special attention to the Masoretic Text. Part 3 is a short discussion of theological implications for Pentecostal reflection including the normalization of biblical narrative, the Open God of Pneumatic experience and the freedom of evil.
