Read, Mark, and Inwardly Digest

...more Scripture, that is.
Don't just take your priest or pastor's word for it, see what God's Word has to say for itself!

  • Good theology reads and asks questions, faith is strengthened by doubt. 
  • Bad theology makes judgments and assumptions and uses the Bible to justify political, social, philosophical, or even economic agendas.

  1. For every gain in deep certitude there is a corresponding growth of superficial "doubt." This doubt is by no means opposed to genuine faith, but it mercilessly examines and questions the spurious "faith" of everyday life, the human faith which is nothing but the passive acceptance of conventional opinion.
