Thomas Jay Oord: Process Theology QnA

Homebrewed Christianity Podcast

We just finished the Christianity in Process class with John Cobb and had a bunch of lingering questions. So I called in my friend and super nerd, Tom Oord, for a little Process Theology QnA. These questions were all submitted by class members, but they ended up inspiring a conversation worth sharing. Plus, Tom and I have been doing a series of “Big God Questions” on the podcast and rarely get past 3 or 4 questions. In this convo we double our normal effort Thomas Jay Oord is a theologian, philosopher, and scholar of multi-disciplinary studies. He is an award-winning author, and he has written or edited more than twenty-five books. Oord directs a doctoral program at Northwind Theological Seminary and the Center for Open and Relational Theology.

I love getting to talk with Tom Oord. In this episode, we finally got to hang out in person! We were both in Norway for the European Society for the Study of Science and Theology, and it became the occasion for a long-overdue hug. During the conference, we snuck off to my room to record a podcast where we discussed… Why John Cobb is awesome (and you should join the Christianity in Process class) the relationship between Process Theology and Open & Relational Theology Biblical Authority Atonement theories Abortion Evangelism Thomas Jay Oord is a theologian, philosopher, and scholar of multi-disciplinary studies.

When Belief Dies #99 - 'Open and Relational Theology' with Thomas Jay Oord

When Belief Dies

Due to my (Sam's) mental health, I am taking a step back from When Belief Dies for now. An announcement video is due to go live on the 20th of April explaining why. The future live streams mentioned in these conversations have been cancelled until I am well again, but Daniel, Roger and I all thought these conversations were well worth sharing. The thumbnail number is wrong, as we had planned to release these in a different order - thank you for understanding. -Sam This week Roger speaks to award-winning writer and theologian Thomas Jay Oord about his view of open and relational theology.  They discuss whether love really is the ultimate reality of the universe and whether Tom’s notion of an uncontrolling God actually helps with the problem of evil.   Sadly, I (Sam) couldn't make this conversation due to being away in London for work. Roger and I spoke before the conversation and Roger agreed to ask a good few questions that I had after I read Thomas's book.   You can find/follow Thomas here: Website Twitter Open and Relational Theology (book) You can find/follow Roger here: Twitter We hope you enjoy our show.

Ep. 46 God is Not in Control: Open Theism w/ Dr. Thomas Jay Oord

Holy Heretics: Losing Religion and Finding Jesus

When bad things happen, I often hear people say "Well, God's still on the throne," as if that is some kind of balm or solution for the pain, evil, and uncertainty the world is facing. But here's the problem: God was on the throne during the Holocaust. God was on the throne during segregation and Jim Crow. God is on the throne as thousands of innocent Ukrainian citizens are currently dying from Russian invasion. If God really is in control, then God is doing a terrible job keeping us all safe and healthy. Classical Christianity has for years stated that God is omnipotent and all-powerful, controlling every outcome and action on earth to bring about God's future. However, this has all kinds of theological and practical problems. If God is really in control, then why do we suffer? Can't God stop our suffering? Open and Relational Theology points us to a different view of God. Instead of a all-controlling God, the God of Open Theism believes that God is experiencing time in the same way we are. This God isn't forcing His will on the world but rather working with us to bring about goodness, beauty, and flourishing. This God doesn't know what is going to happen tomorrow anymore than we do, and in a strange way, that is incredibly comforting. Thomas Jay Oord is a theologian, philosopher, and scholar of multi-disciplinary studies. Oord is a best-selling and award-winning author, having written or edited more than twenty-five books. He directs a doctoral program at Northwind Theological Seminary and the Center for Open and Relational Theology. A twelve-time Faculty Award-winning professor, he teaches around the globe. Oord is known for his contributions to research on love, open and relational theology, science and religion, and the implications of freedom and relationships for transformation.If you enjoyed this episode, please leave us a rating and a review 🙏Show notes: http://www.sophiasociety.org/podcast/god-is-not-in-control-open-theismhttp://www.sophiasociety.org/podcast/God-is-not-in-control-open-theismFollow us on social media!

Open and Relational Theology - With Thomas Jay Oord

Rethinking Faith

This week, Dr. Thomas Jay Oord returns to the podcast for the fourth time. We had an awesome conversation focused around Tom's latest book "Open and Relational Theology: An Introduction to Life-Changing Ideas". Open and Relational Theology has been a steady theme on the show, however, we never did a proper episode just on Open and Relational Theology. So this week, Tom and I sat down for an introductory, and sometimes nerdy, conversation that we hope you find helpful. Enjoy!
