Introduction to Theology #2 – Defining Theology

What exactly is theology and who is a theologian? Why are there so many bad theologies out there? Are you a Tabloid theologian, believing everything you hear? Or are you a more skeptical theologian, who won’t believe anything? This session covered the different methods and commitments, good and bad, that people bring to their theology causing them to be a good theologian or a bad theologian. We learned that that everyone is a theologian because everyone has theological persuasions and convictions, even if they don’t realize it. We have to decide what type of theologian they want to be. One can be a sloppy theologian, by naively receiving their belief system without a constructive methodology, or one can be a theologian with integrity, by exercising critical examination.
