Listen To Theology or Else . . .

“If you do not listen to Theology, that will not mean that you have no ideas about God. It will mean that you have a lot of wrong ones—bad, muddled, out-of-date ideas. For a great many of the ideas about God which are trotted out as novelties today, are simply the ones which real Theologians tried centuries ago and rejected.”

C. S. Lewis
Thanks to Lewis for this delicious truth. If you learn Church history and historical theology you’ll see there is no new heresy found under the sun. You’ll also learn of a great many good, true, and beautiful thoughts about God that were considered long ago. These will nourish you.

  1. That’s a great quote! Jesse and I just recently started going through my copy of the Christian Theology Reader as a way to spark some deeper and more challenging conversations. We’ve really loved studying and pondering those essays together. :o)
