Why Theology? Many people ask me that question. In todays day and age, Theology seems to be a topic that should not be discussed in social circles.
So, why am I showing interest?
Consider what Theology is: “Theo-” means God. “ology” means to know. Knowing God or the study of God’s whole nature.
For a Christian, Theology is an important root of knowledge. Why? It is best summed up by a fellow who live about 2000 years ago:
1Pe_3:15 but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you
This is a foundational statement for any Christian follower. To be prepared to speak of and defend your beliefs, keeping in mind that others may not share the same beliefs.
Theology therefore spans a plethora of topics and issues and addresses both God and all of His Creation, including God, Cosmology (the Heavens), Anthropology (Man), Psychology (the Mind). I have an interest in these particular subjects and so will spend time discussing the multitude of topics and issues we all are facing in our lives.
I hope you all read these posts with an open mind, knowing that they are intended to spawn interest, questions and further thought.
