Theology Matters

I know a lot of people put a wall up and shut down when words like theology and doctrine come up. And I understand that. Unfortunately most of what has been experienced is someone using theology and doctrine as a club to beat people with.

That's a disgrace.

Theology is just the study of God. Doctrine is what we believe. Neither are weapons. Both are extremely important.

What we believe about God impacts every area of our lives. If we have wrong believe it will have disastrous consequences. And I don't think I'm overstating things.

What we believe about God matters. It shapes our worldview. It determines our values. It guides our behavior. It has eternal consequences for us and for everyone we know.

Run towards theology and doctrine. Know God. Know what you believe. Know why you believe it.
