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!

PETER HIETT / WHAT ABOUT HELL?

The goodness of God but hell, atonement but hell, reformation but hell, scripture but hell, Calvinism but hell; in this podcast Peter Hiett describes hell as “Satan’s big but.” In this conversation Peter walks us through the story of our own creation, the goodness of God’s reconciling love, the relational kindness of a God who encounters, sets free and transforms.

Peter describes a God who delights in His creation, a God who destroys what is evil, creates what is good, and invites us to observe our own creation in Christ Jesus.

AWAKENING! with DEREK TURNER & JASON CLARK

An infinite love, the nature of revelation, a kindness that changes our minds, the joy of our salvation discovered as we awaken to the resurrection, the risen Christ within us, in this podcast Derek and Jason discuss how all creation is awakening to the transforming certainty of sacrificial love and resurrection life.

JAMIE & DONNA WINSHIP / OUR TRUE IDENTITY

How to experience God, confession, faith, fear, freedom, our true identity, and cruciform, others-focused, self-emptying unconditional love barely scratches the surface of this packed conversation on the goodness of God.

BRYANT SPRATLIN / THE THIRD OPTION

In this conversation, Jason and Bryant Spratlin discuss the goodness of God and the journey of rethinking God’s wrath as love, the impact of misinterpretation and bad theology, hearing God’s voice, parenting and apologizing, choosing to love and staying connected, identity, loving the religious, imaginary prayer, the fear of being wrong, rethinking hell, apokatastasis-the restoration of all things, the pleasure of our Father, awakening to the present love reality, and Jesus as the perfect minister. The guys discuss the story of the woman caught in adultery to reveal the paradigm of union as the third option Jesus offers all of us. Overall, this conversation highlights the importance of understanding God’s goodness and the transformative power of grace.

DOUGLAS CAMPBELL & JON DEPUE / BEYOND JUSTIFICATION

This conversation, co-hosted by Paul Golf, explores Douglas Campbell and Jon DePue’s book, Beyond Justification: Liberating Paul’s Gospel.

The relational nature of God’s revelation and the transformative power of understanding God’s kindness and reconciliation are central themes.

This conversation delves into the concept of Christian Universalism, the impact of theological beliefs on individuals, and the importance of rethinking traditional perspectives. The conversation also touches on the significance of understanding God’s love and the practical implications of our beliefs in everyday life.
