What words come to mind when you hear the term theology? Dry…Dreary…Doubtful…DULL? You’re not alone.
Too often we don’t realize that theology—thinking about God—is an intimate part of our everyday lives, rather than something that takes place in ivory towers crowded with bearded men crouched over dusty books. We each engage in theology because we each have a set of beliefs about God. But rather than being content with our ideas about God as they now stand, we should each have a desire to know God better than we do today. If you’ve got that desire, then you’re ready to do theology!

Jesus couldn’t have cared less about being politically correct at the expense of spiritual truth, and His statements in Matthew 7:13–23 reveal just that!
Not everyone is ready to hear spiritual truth, so we need to discern our audience. All people share divinely endowed dignity, so we should do to others as we would have them do to us.
