“But in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” – Matthew 15.9
Wouldn’t it be nice if you were as committed to Jesus as you are your theology? The apogee of fallen man is knowledge. The distance between heaven and hell is the difference between knowing about Jesus versus knowing him. Utilized properly, theology leads you to the feet of Jesus, heart filled with love, ready to spring into obedience with joy, as a wise master builder rejoicing in his skill pleasing to the Master. Used far too frequently, theology is an ugly club to gain compliance and show superiority. Theology can be the best and highest thoughts of the Bride considering her Beloved over the millennia, or a snare. Where does your theology lead you?
