What is Theology and Why is it important?

Sunday, 12 January 2020

Theology is the discipline that teaches us to think and talk about God in such a way that directs our faith and living. This is possible only because God enables it in the first place, as he reveals himself in his creation and in the Bible. Without a coherent and consistent biblical worldview, our Christian lives will be “tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming” (Eph 4:14). This session will address specific reasons why we must learn good theology, if we hope to grow in Christian faith and practice, which is why Paul challenged the Corinthians for being “infants in Christ.” He writes, “I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it” (1 Cor 3:2).
