Speaker: Kris MacQueen
Theology might feel like an old, dusty word to some of us, but really, it’s just a word that describes what we think about when we think about God. Whatever ideas we have about God, that’s what our theology is. And here’s the thing, theology matters. Everyone has opinions about God. And those opinions and thoughts and ideas actually shape how we live our lives and not just our “spiritual life”. Theology that matters shapes the whole of life. If a person thinks that God is angry with them most of the time, that’s a theology (an unhelpful one, but a theology nonetheless).
Theology provides the framework – the skeleton – for how we flesh out the way we think, how we live, and how we love.
We’re going to take a few weeks and talk about some of the theology that is particularly vital to how we relate to God and to one another, particularly in the Vineyard. This week, we’re going to put the “Theology of the Kingdom of God” through the “Why? So that….” filter we’ve been talking about lately.
