Articles about Christian Theology

By “Christian theology” I mean, more specifically, biblical theology. That is, what the Bible says about God and how He does things. If you’re looking for erroneous things that some Christians might believe, you’ll find some in the False Teaching section.

Postmodernism is the idea is that reality is subjective...that there is no absolute truth, and that reality differs from person to person. The phrase "what's true for you might not be true for me" typifies a postmodern point of view.

Recently, a GodWords reader sent me a personal message in which he stated, "Theology is a LIE!!!". He may have actually used four exclamation points, come to think of it. Either way, part of his point was that...well, that theology is a lie. I've heard that before.

Every once in a while I hear a Christian say that they're "not into theology". They say that they "just love Jesus". Even one of my pastors told me that he took theology classes only so that he could be ordained. Sometimes these kinds of statements depress me.

This is a common question, even if it's not expressed out loud. Science and religion are often seen as in conflict. I suggest that most often, they are not...the problem is one of utility. Here's the problem, in my estimation:

Yeah, I know...I'm going straight to Hell. Do not pass Go, do not collect $200. Before you start forming your lynch mob, listen closely: Jesus is NOT in your heart.
