from my notebook

My head is full of thoughts, and I have to write them down.

How Important is Theology?

Here’s a quote from an interesting article from Dan Reiland a couple of weeks ago – Arguing Theology.

If people are saying yes to Jesus, experiencing genuine spiritual conversion and changed lives are obvious, it’s hard to argue about that regardless of your theological bent or bias. If a church is leading people to Jesus and lives are changed based on biblical truth, I’m a fan of that church, regardless of their theology.

I don’t know if Reiland had any particular situations in mind when he wrote this.  It could be applied to some of the criticism given to certain popular Pastors and churches around the country.  It reminded me of an incident in my own denomination a few years back, so I might add that it also isn’t helpful to pull dedicated missionaries from the field because they have experienced spiritual things that don’t line-up with the denomination’s standard doctrine.
