Theology and Christianity, Do They Mix?

John 1:1 Monte T. Brown

Introduction

There is a question that goes back to times passed and that question is does theology and Christianity mix?

Let us examine the Word of God by turning to the book of John.

If you would let us honor the Word of God by standing as we read from John 1:1.

Scripture

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1 (NKJV)

Theology and Christianity, Do They Mix?

Theology is the science of God through the interpretation of religious faith, practice, or experiences.

Or putting it in layman terms, the hearing, reading, studying, and memorizing the Bible.

The Bible is a book comprised of many small books.

The Bible is a covenant for those that accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

Classed into two covenants, the Old Testament and the New Testament, there are a total of 66 books, with 44 authors, and spans 1600 years from the first book being penned and the last book.

There is absolute unity and with consistent truth.

For the Bible is;

It is a book of history.

It’s a book of happenings.

It is a book that shows God at work in a redemptive history

that rings out a divine purpose.

The Bible is not a book of science; but science cannot exist

without it. It is the very foundation of the laws of nature

which science depends on.

The purpose of the Bible is to reveal God to man.

We cannot know God and deny theology.

To deny theology is to reveal ones lack of understanding of God.

Knowing the theology of God’s Holy Scriptures reveals to us that the gospel is a progressive revelation.

It is the very means of our salvation.

For In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1.

You see Jesus Christ is the Living Word.

Theology is experiencing the Living Word.

If we experience the Living Word, then we are experiencing Christ.

The scriptures reveal to us, the plight of mankind is this: We are all sinners.

Our lives are nothing more that filthy rags.

The nature of mankind is sin.

The natural man is an enemy of God and cannot understand the Bible that is they cannot interpret it.

The coming of the low is explained in regard to its objects:

Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound.

Then comes the mission of the gospel: But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more, Romans 5:20.

1. First, we speak of the text as CONCERNING THE WORLD.

The object of God is sending the law into the world was: that the offense might abound.

But then comes the gospel, for: where sin abounded, grace abounded much more,

First, then, in reference to the entire world, God sent the law into the world that the offense might abound.

There was sin long before Sinai smoked; long ere the mountain trembled beneath the weight of Deity, and the dread trumpet sounded exceeding loud an long, there had been transgression.

And where that law has never been heard, in heathen countries where that word has never gone forth, yet there is sin, because, though men cannot sin against the law which they have never see, yet they can all rebel against the light of nature, against the dictates of conscience, and against the traditional remembrance of right and wrong, which has followed mankind from the place where God created them.
