Theology is the study of religion. It examines the human experience of faith, and how different people and cultures express it. Theologians examine the many different religions of the world and their impact on society. Today we are more aware than ever of the profound influence religion has on us, even if we do not follow it ourselves. Understanding this can help us understand the laws, wars, traditions and morals of our own society and that of others.
The study of theology is part philosophy, part history, part anthropology, and also something entirely its own. Theologians have the complex job of thinking about and debating the nature of God. Studying theology means taking on challenging questions about the meaning of religion. It also requires being able to compare the different religions in a knowledgeable, balanced way. We offer the following qualifications:
- Bachelor of Theology
- Bachelor of Theology (Honours),
- Master of Theology
- Doctor of Theology
Theology matters. Everyone is a theologian because everyone has thoughts about God. The question is, Are you a good theologian or a bad theologian? As followers of Jesus Christ, we have the opportunity to grow in our knowledge of the truth so that we might love the Lord and others more. This class, which is part of a four part series, is designed to give an overview of the theological truths that accord with Christian orthodoxy.
Theology provides helpful tools and clear, faithful methods to allow the Bible reader to study, filter, discern, and discuss what the whole Bible teaches about various topics. Specifically, the course will discuss 5 ground rules for doing theology, offer 5 reasons to love theology, consider a precise definition of theology, discuss how some theological concepts are more critical than others, and, finally, outline a clear and faithful method for doing theology.
This course is ideal for all those who are interested in learning more about the God of the Bible and the truth which he has revealed about who he is, who we are, where we came from, and where we are going. Thank you for considering entering into this eternally significant, life altering adventure of knowing the truth and embracing the truth.
