I have been thinking a lot about theology lately. But not the theology found in Grudem’s or Strong’s massive books with 6-point font. I have been thinking more about the “word” theology.
Theology can be broken down into three basic parts:
1. The study of God
2. The truthfulness of religion in general
3. An organized method of interpreting scripture
It’s the first part that gives most people problems. We have a tendency to put most of our energy into parts 2 and 3 (the study of religion and our methods of interpretation) rather than studying more about God Himself.
Think I’ll go fishing very soon.
