Who's afraid of Big Bad Theology?

I remember when i was young in the faith i attended my friends church where he was lecturing his fellow sunday schoool teachers. When he used the word THEOLOGY a female sunday school teacher raised her hand and said we should not preach/teach theology but who christ is.

His response was: that is theology
she responded again: we should not preach/teach theology but the love of christ.

His response was: that is theology

she contiuned and he responded with the same response: that is theology!

Looking back then:

1. I hope she got it

2. I hope the sunday school teachers gathered there did not feel like her.

AMEN!

Folks forget we're to love God with all of our mind. For those who "just want to love Jesus" they have to stop and find out who Jesus is, what Jesus is like, what Jesus likes, what Jesus doesn't like, etc.

That's the study of God. That's theolgy.

Oh ... and did I say, "Amen?"
