Me, a Theologian?

A theologian is not a person who has studied systematic theology but a Christian who thinks about God. (Harry Lee Poe, C. S. Lewis biographer)

Often in a serious conversation about the Bible or Christian doctrine, someone will say, “Well, I’m not a theologian, so I can’t really know much about it.” The truth of the matter is, however, that anyone who considers himself or herself religious or spiritual does have a theological perspective on life and living. We don’t need the PhDs to answer the questions. We can look to God’s Word for understanding.

All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. (2 Timothy 3:16)
