“Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.” Acts 17:11 ESV.
Theology is simply the study of God. And just like all other fields of study, there are proven methods and techniques to help one accumulate knowledge, understanding, and wisdom of the subject matter.
So why is the study of theology important?
Because good theology draws you closer to the God who created reality. Good theology opens one’s eyes to know Him more intimately. Good theology is the basis of building a stronger framework to make life physically, socially, and spiritually richer.
On the other hand, poor theology distorts your relationship with the Creator and therefore reduces your potential to live a full, meaningful life. Instead of living ones full human potential, poor theology robs the person from fully knowing himself. Poor theology typically focuses more on illusion rather than reality.
The further away one is from the central core of reality, the further one’s theology of God becomes distorted.
Good theology comes from living the with-God life. Bad theology (or no theology) is living life by keeping God a distance away from you. Good theology hugs God every time you meet. Poor theology is pushing God away.
When one begins to develop a relationship with the Author of Life, one wants to know everything one can about Him. And the more you hang out with Him, the more He reveals Himself to you.
Don’t be afraid of theology. Everyone is a theologian. The question is which type do you want to be?
