In this article two problems are discussed: first, whether it is possible to speak about God’s action in a scientific context, and second, whether such a scientific concept of God would resemble the Christian concept of God. If our universe is deterministic, God’s action is excluded, for then our universe is ‘closed’ in that it contains all the conditions necessary for scientific explanation. The main line of this article thus revolves around the question whether we have conclusive reasons to believe our universe is deterministic. The conclusion, based on physical, epistemological, and logical arguments, is that we do not.
