Five Reasons We Should Study Theology

For many people the study of theology is unimportant.  They think it is boring.  They think it does not affect them.  Some think that studying theology is a task for ministers only.  You can probably think of several more reasons you have heard, or used, as to why people refuse to study theology.  These reasons are all false.  We all need to study theology.

In this short post, Nathan Bingham gives five reasons why we should study theology.  I just found this blog and don’t know anything about Bingham but the reasons he gives are clear, concise, and will make you think.  After reading his post, let me know if you agree or disagree with what he says.

What is the Meaning of Life?

This question is answered by R.K. McGregor Wright in his book No Place for Sovereignty: What’s Wrong with Freewill Theism. He says

Since we are creatures, our meaning originates in the eternal intention of God for his creation. No finite thing has any meaning apart from its place in God’s plan. (p. 75-76)

This is the biblical response to the persistent question “What is the meaning of life?” The meaning of everything is logically identical to God’s intention for it. (p. 76)

Simple.  Don’t you think?  I have addressed this question before (here).  My answer in that post is still valid because it is basically the same answer that Wright gives.  He just says it better and more concisely than I do.

So, do you agree with Wright’s answer?  Why?
