Questions for Reflection on Christian Theology

  1. Brainstorm: What comes to mind when you hear the word theology?
  2. In your opinion, what is the point in Christian theology at which we just have to throw up our hands and say “it’s a mystery”?
  3. What are the sources you have used to develop your theology?

    Hiya, Joe. Excellent start last night to class. I thought I’d follow up on one of the rabbit trails we glanced down. That book tracing Baptist history back to the 1st century that I laughed at is called “Trail of Blood” and, based on the comments I now read on-line, the idea has been generally discredited for using splinter groups, pre-1054, to trace the line back to Christ. It appears that no self-respecting Baptist would today associate today with the heretical ideas of those groups, so why try to put ’em in the family tree? I guess we’re not special after all. Fooey. See you next Sunday! Kevin
