    Openness Theology

    • 2169 Words
    • 9 Pages

    In recent years, new theologies have risen to answer the questions concerning the existence of God and evil. Openness, Love, and Essential Kenosis theologies offer an explanation for evil; however, there are several issues within these theologies which cause concern. Their answer redefines omniscience, teaches that God cannot be a sufficient cause, and stresses the proper way to understand God is only through love. These views have direct implications on the inspiration of Scripture and God’s self-revelations. Although there are other issues of concern, this paper will focus on these areas stated in the thesis.

    • 6 Pages

    Julian’s Theology In a time period of which the traditional theology of the church was centered around the damning and vengeful nature of God towards sinners, Julian of Norwich carefully contradicts the condemning nature of the doctrine of the church and offers a more forward-looking theology grounded in God’s love.

Floyd-Thomas, womanist theology reveals itself to be an organic discourse inasmuch as it is faithful to the church while also seeking to remake this most central and cherished institution. This is not viewed as an innovation by womanist theologians but is deemed a continuation of Black women’s traditional culture of struggle survival and, and celebration that represents the likes of womanist muses such as: Maria Steward, Sojourner Truth,…

Psychology today is not biblically based, whereas Theology is. Integrating Theology and Psychology proves to be valuable since it helps us to understand human…

    I am God, and there is no one like Me, Declaring the end from the beginning, (Isaiah 46:9c-10a NASB) Is the God of Process Theology the God of the Bible? This question will be answered in this essay. The God of Scriptures is sovereign (1 Tim. 6:15), immutable (Mal. 3:6), infinite (Jer. 10:10), perfect (Mat. 5:48), and prophetic (Is. 14:24). However, the God of Whitehead’s Process Theology is a source of meaning and reason; it changes and is changed, it is everlasting but imperfect and does not…

    A recent renaissance of the doctrine of Trinity in the latter half of the twentieth century has shown to be the impetus for many prominent theologians to apply this theology into all traditional loci of systematic theology. One such enrichment is the Third Article theology (because of the Holy Spirit's position in the creed), by which pneumatology assumes first place in terms of theological methodology. Standing on the shoulders of giants, such as Karl Barth or Paul Tillich, who did not have…
