Who is God in Process Theology

The question directs the participants to an anthropomorphic view of that which we call God. From a science perspective, G-D is the energy that created the universe, gave life to that universe and sustains all things in the universe. Process theology says that all things are in motion, nothing is static. The created universe has properties of self healing, of creating within itself new physical bodies, has mass that draws smaller or less dense objects together gravitationally (a distortion in the energy field occupying the space between matter). Belief in G-D is as unnecessary as belief in gravity. They are simply forces that exist regardless of belief. What humans create is a construct of a G-D with human qualities: love, goodness, mercy, vengeance, judgment, salvation, and so on. The climate changes we are experiencing globally are not judgments or punishments from G-D. They are the result of human failures in the care of the earth and its resources. When humans become extinct, the earth will heal itself. Life will continue to evolve.

Enjoyed!

A great convo with Cole Arthur Riley! The questions are thoughtful. The conversation is relaxed and relational. The topic spoke into the realities of the world today- especially for people of faith, faith leaders and theologians of any kind. Thank you for bringing real people with authentic stories and topics that are relevant to the platform.
