Theology the study of the nature of God and religious belief about God or gods but it was not religion. Religion originally the performance of a duty to God and your fellowman.
The word theology comes from two Greek words. The theo has to do with a god or ruling judge and ology has to do with study.
It may include other studioes:
- Apologetics is the whole of the consensus of the views of those who defend a position in an argument of long standing.
- Ecclesiology usually now refers to the theological study of the Christian Church.
- Biblical cosmology is the biblical writers' conception of the Cosmos as an organised, structured entity, including its origin, order, meaning and destiny.
- Eschatology the part of theology concerned with death, judgment, and the final destiny of the soul and of humankind.
- Sophiology (from Greek Σοφία "sophia", wisdom) is a philosophical concept regarding wisdom, as well as a theological concept regarding the wisdom of God.
- Salvation, in Christianity, is the saving of the soul from sin and its consequences. It may also be called "deliverance" or "redemption" from sin and its effects.
- Christian soteriology ranges from exclusive salvation to universal reconciliation concepts.
- The term "exotheology" was coined in the 1960s or early 1970s for the examination of theological issues as they pertain to extraterrestrial intelligence.
Repentance is about not only thinking another way but being compelled by what we now understand to be true to live another way. Truly repenting will include turning around and going another way. Faith is not just thinking another theology or accepting intellectual study of God. If Christ is in us we want to serve others because we care about others as much if not more than ourselves.
To attempt to create whole Theologies and Eschatology about God, and then imagining that is being faithful, when many of the same people are not even doing the basics of the Gospel of the Kingdom and the directive of Christ ... this is piteous, and such ones who imagine that way are often merely getting absolutely lost in the tree of knowledge.
- "Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth." 2 Timothy 3:7
The Gospel is simple. We should be seeking the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and Judge not.
We should be loving one another as he loved us and tending to the Weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith which include caring for the needs of our neighbors, the widows and orphans of our society through Pure Religion in matters of health, education, and welfare. We are NOT to do so by the Covetous Practices of modern governments.
The Way of Christ was not like the way of the world, nor the governments of the gentiles who depend on benefactors who exercise authority. Christ's ministers and true Christians do not depend upon systems of social welfare that force the contributions of the people like the corban of the Pharisees which made the word of God to none effect. Many people have been deceived to go the way of Balaam and the Nicolaitan and out of The Way of Christ.
The Christian conflict of the first century Church appointed by Christ was because they would not apply to the fathers of the earth for benefits but instead relied upon a voluntary network providing a daily ministration to the needy of society through Faith, Hope, and Charity by way of freewill offerings of the people, for the people, and by the people through the perfect law of liberty in Free Assemblies according to the ancient pattern of Tuns or Tens.
"Follow me!" —Jesus the Christ.
- One of the most important things to do is to become involved in a network of Charitable Practices. Everyone should want to join a Living Network of Love and Charity.
- If you think you have a calling to be a Minister of God or you might want to dedicate your life to Christ as an Ordained Minister of His Holy Church then contact us to start the process of discipleship and become the benefactors who exercise only love, NOT authority.
