WHAT’S YOUR THEOLOGY?


By Akin Ojumu

Atheists would like you to believe theres no such thing as God. That’s theology. 

Agnostics are of the opinion that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God or of anything beyond material phenomena. That too is theology. 

Gnostics, on the other hand, believe God is known only by a select few who have acquired transcendental and esoteric spiritual knowledge not available to anyone else. That, my friend, is also theology.

Whether or not you believe there’s God, and whatever it is you believe of God, you most definitely have a theology. There’s no one without a theological perspective. Wherever you fit on the continuum of religious beliefs, you are a theologian in your own right. 

And theology matters. Your theology is the foundation of your beliefs, what you believe shapes who you are, and who you are determines which side of eternity you'll find yourself. 

If your theology is not rooted in Scripture, it amounts to nothing but an aesthetically constructed garbage heap of worldly wisdom. Theology that is not anchored in sound doctrine is nothing but a cesspool of human philosophy that scintillates the mind and fouls up the soul.

So, the question for you isn’t whether or not you are a theologian. The real question is the source and quality of your theology.
