[*]1.There are thousands of different denominations out there, all reading the same Bible. In the midst of so many disagreements in the church how can you confidently believe anything about God?
[*]2.Select one other question from the list on page 86 and write a response.


1.Despite all the disagreements in the church, we can use theology, which we process through reading the Scripture, looking back at tradition, viewing nature, and considering our experience with God, to discern which beliefs are weightier than others and to know which beliefs to adhere to as truth versus heresy. This allows us to know that some beliefs rely on personal conviction, while others, like the core of Christianity, the Gospel, are true for all. With sound theology, we may also understand how our beliefs connect through apostolic tradition and the order and connection of Scripture. Moreover, the basic tenants of the Gospel allow us to connect across most of the different Christian denominations, since we all believe in the Gospel. Because Jesus sent us His Holy Spirit, we are not doing all of this in our own strength. If we rely on the Holy Spirit while deepening our knowledge and understanding of God through theology, then the Holy Spirit will lead us to conviction.

2. I chose question 8. "Is it possible to do good evangelical theology armed with nothing more than a Bible and a concordance? Why or why not?"
No, it is not possible to do good evangelical theology this way. One reason, is that if one ignores tradition and centuries of theological debates that have concluded certain things, one might end up reinventing the wheel, when one could benefit from the wealth of knowledge of those before him and build on it. Using only the Bible and a concordance may also lead to making a list of propositions of what God says in Scripture, rather than engaging with what and how God says such things and how God reveals Himself in Scripture. This method of using the Bible without tradition, natural revelation, experience, and culture will end up with a shallow and ignorant theology. The purpose of doing theology is to grow closer to God, to know Him better and to be further transformed by Him. Without natural revelation and experience, theology could possibly be reduced to propositions and rules which might lead one to think that they alone have the right theology. Our experience with God and natural revelation with Him, as well as what is in tradition will keep us humble in our theological beliefs.

Josh - What is the journal for theology that we are supposed to fill out?
Tim - Are those four questions the flow chart? Do we just answer each question as we read or are we supposed to apply a thought to all of the questions?

Those four questions are the "flow chart" for now - Tim will expand on it as the school year develops. So for now, just focus on answering those four questions for each passage he assigned.
