To many Christians, theology is a bad word. It brings negative connotations of being know-it-alls since we know “knowledge puffs up” (1 Cor. 8:1). Christians are, rightfully so, afraid of being eggheads. However, that shouldn’t hinder us from this work. We must understand that the spiritual discipline of studying theology is not only for scholars, pastors, and the like. It is for every Christian. All Christians are, by definition, theologians.
If we are Christians, we need theology, since theology is the study of God.
The purpose behind this blog is to glorify God by writing theological material that is meant not only to explain different theological concepts, but show how theology affects our lives. People need to see that theology is a good thing and that, as Christians, we need to be students of the Word.
From time to time I will write more personally. I will write about life experiences and what is happening in my life. I mainly write about theology, but for whoever reads it, I also want to be more personal at times. Even then, theology will saturate that as well.
This is why the blog site is titled Theology & Life. I hope you enjoy.
