As A.H. Strong once said, “Religion is about man’s response to God, theology is about God and His plan for man. Theology is the science of God and the relations between God and the universe.” In order to first understand if theology is important or not in our lives, it is vital to understand what theology is. In the simplest definition of theology according to Merriam Webster dictionary is “the study of religious faith, practice, and experience or the study of God and God’s relation to the world.” The more in depth definition of Christian theology on the other hand according to John M. Frame in Salvation Belongs to the Lord is “the human attempt to apply the Bible to people’s questions and, indeed, to all human needs.” In other words, the study of theology is the study of who God is, His words, and what God is like. Theology is also our attempt as humans to apply Biblical knowledge to make sense of our everyday lives. Theology includes not only the study of God and his attributes, but also his creation and His work in creation. Therefore, I believe that as followers of Christ (Christians), Christian theology is important to begin to comprehend. However, it is important to note that theology is not always beneficial to one’s faith. Some theology can cause confusion and frustration, instead of a great knowledge of the God that we serve. Therefore, the study of theology is important in the sense that it allows us to study Scripture and as a result understand and truly know God
