In the chaos of faith, rebellion and obedience

The Range of Theology

Posted by justicetabernacle on June 3, 2009

there is a wide range of theology within the church- in case you didn’t know. as i gear up for the ‘advance conference’ this week, i’ve been reading up on and listening to some reformed and calvanist theology. there will be plenty of that as we hear from driscoll, chandler, piper and the rest.

to counter-balance however, i spent some time reading and listening to some orthodox theology. the biggest thing that i came across yesterday in the orthodox realm was the issue of the scriptures. the orthodox church is very critical of using anything except the original text for discernment on theological and doctrinal issues. they see the usefulness of the translated bible for spiritual supplement and introduction to new cultures- but are true to the original language text as the final authority on theology, as they believe that it alone is the inspired Word of God.
