Relationship Is Way Better Than Rules

with Jarod Teague

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We all have friends who walk with us and encourage and challenge us. Those people who we call when we get a revelation or breakthrough, Jarred Teague is that guy for Thomas.

Jarred grew up Baptist with loving parents. But much of his thoughts about his faith were filtered through a retributive God lens. So Jarred was faced with the intellectual disparity of a good God who would send people to hell to prove His love.

But years ago, Jarred walked away from that fractured faith and discovered the simple gospel, God is like Jesus. This has led to great freedom, transformation, and the realization that when the gospel is the love of God, we can change the world.

This is a laughter-filled conversation about a kind God and a transformative faith with Jarred Teague. You can connect with Jarred on FaceBook and Instagram

    Oh my goodness, I’ve got shivers and I haven’t even made it past Jason’s introduction yet! haha!
    This is so wild. My friend and I were talking a couple days ago about your work and how much we love it, especially the stories! I love the theology stuff, but it’s the stories that transform me – there is power in the stories. We decided we should write to you and tell you “we’d love to hear more stories of people’s experiences with knowing God this way!” and then before we could, this podcast came out. How perfect! How beautiful! We don’t even have to ask because God is just THAT good. I can’t wait to hear the rest now.

      There IS power in stories!

      Fun to read the timing on this. We have a couple of podcasts with friends that are more conversational so that’s fun! I think you will love the Sarah Floyd podcast as well. We actually talk about the power of story.

        I absolutely loved Sarah’s podcast and that’s what made me want more like it! This was awesome, guys. Hearing Jarod’s story was very relatable. I don’t know what it is about hearing your own experiences in someone else’s story, but I think it helps to create that sense of belonging that you were talking about in this podcast. It helps me to realize I’m not crazy, I’m not alone, I’m not hearing my own messed up voices, but that God really is doing a work and it’s happening for others too!!! That does something HUGE in me and I value it so highly. Thank you!

Co-Author of A Church Called TOV, Scot McKnight talks about his new book written in response to the abuses of power, sexual abuse, and spiritual abuse within the leadership of Willow Creek, Harvest, and sadly churches of all shapes and sizes.

We talked about TOV (which means goodness) and how when we practice empathy, compassion, extending grace, putting people first, telling the truth, promoting justice, and serving others, TOV emerges in the culture and we all become more Christlike.

THOMAS JAY OORD / GOD CAN’T

“Given that we start with God’s power…we end up giving God the kind of capabilities that make God culpable; in other words, morally responsible for not only causing but allowing bad things…I think there are good biblical reasons to object to that standard view of Gods power.” Thomas Jay Oord
