How Powerful is God?: Process and LDS Theology in Dialogue Process theology poses many provocative questions for LDS theologians about the nature and power of God, especially about whether God or some other force or power is the metaphysical Ultimate, how God exerts influence in a universe composed entirely of free agents, and what it means to exist in relationship with others. Is God the most powerful force in the world, or is it process, creativity, the moral law, love, or something else? Does the notion that God can only exercise persuasive power make for an adequate God? How are we and everything else in the universe, including God, interrelated? In these areas and others, process theology can stretch our Mormon imaginations. Do Mormon notions also pose challenges for the further development of process theology.
