Dipping in and out of various devotionals and consuming a steady diet of anecdotal tid-bits, we subconsciously "check the box" of our spiritual nourishment without actually being nourished at all. While, in fact, being starved for knowledge.
But the reality is that women ARE theologians, because to know God is to be a student of Him.
We are all either good theologians or poor ones.
It takes intentionality to be a knowledgeable, skilled, capable, competent theologian.
And that intentionality starts with an understanding of what there is to study so that it can be studied well.
Types of Theology:
1) Biblical Theology-
A comprehensive study of the Bible's metanarrative.
2) Historical Theology-
A comprehensive overview of the ways the Church has defined and engaged with orthodoxy.
3) Systematic Theology-
A systematic study of the facts of doctrine and what they say about God.
4) Practical Theology-
A study of how doctrine impacts our lives.
Facets of Systematic Theology:
The study of God the Father
The study of God the Son
The study of God the Holy Spirit
The study of mankind
The study of sin
The study of Heavenly Beings
The study of Scripture
The study of (the order of) Salvation
The study of Church structure and function
The study of the end times
In addition to the tendency to dip in and out of various devotions, women are often not taught how to study theology in a way that amounts to anything more than random, brief encounters with various aspects of it.
In my Love With Your Mind course, I will teach you how to study theology systematically, intentionally, and effectively.
