Current kingmaker in the Christian blogosphere, Rachel Held Evans, posted a piece by Tripp and Bo of Homebrewed Christianity called, “Omnipotence: A Compliment Jesus Wants You to Take Back.” (Don’t think Rachel’s a kingmaker? Well, the post currently has 295 comments.) Now Tripp and Bo have a follow-up post on HBC.
Process Theology provides some answers to many of the same questions that I’m asking in my current book project, Why Pray? As the guys make clear in the comments, Process Theology is different than Open Theism (Greg Boyd, et al).
Open Theism is fundamentally evangelical — it’s a way to solve a problem that evangelicalism has as a result of its biblical hermeneutic. It’s a solution to a problem that I don’t really have. A God to whom the future is foreclosed is not the God of the Bible, nor is that a God that anyone should want to worship or pray to.
