    Update: What's Next?

    I want to know what is next for When Belief Dies, and I want you to help me on the journey of kicking things back off.

    Thank you for the love and support as I've been battling with my mental health - it's SO appreciated.

    If you wanna connect before I (maybe) open things back up, you can find me on Twitter @WhenBeliefDies

    This is a Video and Audio episode on Spotify (trying out this new feature - let me know what you think!).

    It's time to stop, even though it breaks my heart. This episode serves as my reason why.

    When Belief Dies #100 - 'Psychedelics, Philosophy & God' with Peter Sjöstedt-Hughes

    When Belief Dies #100 - 'Psychedelics, Philosophy & God' with Peter Sjöstedt-Hughes

    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 Sam and Roger sit down with Peter Sjöstedt-Hughes and talk about the space that is philosophy, psychedelics, theology, naturalism, materialism, atheism and Christianity. 

    This was a fantastic conversation, and I look forward to welcoming Peter back on the podcast in due course.

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

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

    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.

Excellent Podcast

Enjoying the podcast so much. Great variety of guests, journeys, beliefs, non beliefs. Thought provoking, interesting, especially for anyone, like myself, having left faith behind yet still exploring the landscape with curiosity. So good to find commonality in the exploration without conditions attached.

Excellent

Very interesting and honest conversations. Plenty there for Christians, atheists and anyone in between!

Twowayskeptic ,

Honest and fair

This podcast has some great interviews. Sam as a former Christian is really respectful of both sides and each guest is allowed the space to talk and share their unique perspective on questions of faith. It’s been great to hear from some prominent speakers in this less adversarial format.
