I had the privilege of guest writing on the blog Solas and Struggles. We discussed the importance of theology and doctrine. The article centered around the reality that all christians are theologians, and if we take the bible seriously, we would take doctrine seriously. Check out the post by clicking here.
Here is an excerpt from the article:
No creed, but Christ” is often heard when the discussion of theology arises or perhaps you have heard, “I don’t need theology, just give me Jesus!” While such statements are usually made with good intention, an alarm goes off, which Jesus are we talking about? Are we talking about the Jesus seen in Roman Catholicism, Islam, Mormonism, or perhaps Jehovah’s Witnesses? If Jesus is truly the only way to salvation (John 14:6) then a man named Jesus as depicted in other theological systems just won’t do! Beyond this is the reality that “No creed, but Christ” is a creed in itself, and one that is difficult to explain. What is the Christ? Why did the Christ even need to come? There are inherent theological truths in the title Christ and there are inherent theological truths that are necessary to the gospel! The truth of the matter is that you are a theologian! The question is, are you a good theologian or a bad theologian?
