In the matter of the truth, theology and reason are one. The reason is not just a means of gaining knowledge, but is itself a form of knowledge, so theology can be defined as a way of knowing the world. This is all the more true when we consider the fact that theology is essentially a type of reasoning.
There is an unfortunate misunderstanding in the Christian community,
as it relates to theology and the truth. The problem is that many people who believe they have been ‘baptized’ with the Christian faith do not know how to use their knowledge properly, and thus do not recognize that they are being led to their own demise by a false concept. Unfortunately, there are many who don’t recognize their own theology, or even the relationship between theology and the truth.
Many Christians are afraid to admit the fact that the truth can be revealed through logic and evidence, but also by what is known as experience. Some people understand this and realize that they need theology and the truth, but many who are orthodox do not understand this, and believe that theology and the truth are two completely different things.
The fact of the matter is that theology and the truth are not separate entities. Rather, there is a subtle but crucial difference between the two, as this topic is addressed in depth in the last chapter of my book, “God’s Perspective on God.” This is very important, as it is a major reason for the loss of trust and relationship with God within the Christian community.
Theology can be defined as the knowledge of the universe and thus of the nature of God. Theology does not simply mean knowledge, but the application of that knowledge to various situations. It may sound fairly simple, but when you attempt to apply the knowledge to life, or to specific issues that you encounter, you will realize that you are unable to fully comprehend it.
Why is theology important? This is important, because there is no sense in explaining why this is important, and it is a fact that has been known for thousands of years. Just think about the many times that you have considered Christianity or God, and realized that the truth is not in the philosophy, but rather in your heart. You can know the truth, but you must first know where it comes from.
To know the truth is to be able to take the information and apply it to your life.
To do this, you must first know the truth, as it is the beginning of knowledge. It is the first step to being able to make decisions based on it.
Theology is something that exists separately from life, and is not something that can be applied to life. A theology, therefore, cannot be used to determine whether something is right or wrong. It can, however, be used to determine the direction to move in.
Logic is something that can be applied to life, but it cannot be applied to life without logic. Logically, what is true for logic applies to everything else, and is not a single category, but a collection of categories. Here again, the only way to apply logic is to apply it to life, but this does not mean that a theology can be applied to life.
Since the concepts of theology and the truth are quite different, it follows that the concepts of these are quite different as well. Theology is a type of understanding, while the truth is something that can be known and accepted and is known by logic. This means that there is no philosophy of the truth, because there is no truth.
Logic is the same as theology, as both are related to reality. But the word theology itself, when applied to life, does not mean the same thing as the word logic when applied to life.
- We have already seen how there is a fundamental difference between theology and the truth.
- How theology can be applied to life without making any logical or theoretical distinctions.
- Yet there is still more to say about this issue, but the basic ideas are quite clear and quite simple to grasp.
