    To understand the relationship between doing theology and studying theology one must look at theology as a science and theology as spirituality. Although critics reason that theology cannot be defined as a science because of the lack of empirical evidence on the existence of God, theology proceeds on the reasoned assumption that God is real and develops rationally and logically on this assumption. According to Anselm theology is not a way of which leads to faith, but a way of believing that leads

    How does Christ demonstrate he would remain sacramentally present to the community in the ritual of the Last Supper? At the Last Supper, which is also known as the sacred meal Jesus spoke to his disciples with the outmost amount of trust. He let them know through his words that he would be a part or one with them through anything. He actually said to them he would remain in their human lives no matter what. This meant that Jesus would be with them whether he was alive or dead. These disciples were

    There are five reasons that I am studying theology. First, it’s how I know more about God. Proverbs 1: 7 says, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” In 1992, we took a trip from Ethiopia, to South Sudan. That was around May during the rainy season. We came to a village but we couldn’t find any place to stay. The thirty of us slept outside the village fence. But at midnight rain started to fall and we didn 't have anyplace to go. So

    Theology needs to be recognized as something holistic and essential to all people. I have a theory that an individual’s concept of God plays a drastic role in virtually all aspects of their life; from one’s big decisions such as their relationships, job choice, and community, to smaller decisions such as hobbies – things that they spend their time on, what they eat, and others. This conclusion however is drawn with recognition that this notion could be perceived as extreme, especially to those who

    What is theology? What does it explain if anything? According to the encyclopedia, it is related to the Greek Religion. In Christianity, the systematic study of the nature of God and God's relationship with humanity and with the world. Although other religions may be said to have theologies, this is a matter of controversy within, for instance, Judaism , which holds that God is unknowable. This article will therefore confine itself to Christian theology. The development of theology in Christendom

    There are so many different opinions on how one can define theology and faith. And is there any relation to the two. Are they considered to be one in the same, or they totally different from each other? Let us first get an understanding of the two by definition. Theology is considered to be “the study of religious faith, practice, and experience along with the study of God and God’s relation to the world” (Webster.) We’ll come back to theology later; now let us get the definition for faith. Faith

    Liberation theology is religious phenomenon which bursts on the scene in the 1960’s. A consciousness for injustice was always prevalent in the Church, but the “theologies of liberation, particularly the classical Latin American variety, evolved in protest against the inability in Western church and missionary circles, both Catholic and Protestant, to grapple with the problems of systemic injustice.” (Boch 443) To truly understand the critiques of missiology which have been articulated by Latin

    Liberation theology was considered both a radical and political movement in Roman Catholic Theology. It proposes the fight of poverty and goes in depth into the relationship of Christian theology and political activism. It interpreted Jesus’ teachings in relation to liberation through economic, political and social conditions. Liberation Theology spoke on how the Christian church should act in order to bring social change as well as support itself with the working group. It also explains how the

    on the ideas of James Cone’s ideas on Liberation Theology and the relationship between the Cross and the Lynching Tree, our group decided to focus the topic of our presentation around Liberation Theology.

    3Write what you know, the pundits say, and I agree, we are conditioned to take the road less traveled by with only the different drummer to keep us company. As a student, I often find myself stumbling around in the theological woods, feeling lost, losing hope and ending up with mud everywhere, but especially on my face. However, the journey, while it lasts, is more interesting than the interstate highway of common knowledge; it certainly has a way of keeping complacency at bay. For me, that seed
