Episode 40: Know Your Creed
/

It’s a throwback to Episode 1 of Table Talk as Lance Laughton, area co-ordinator of the Baptist Northern Association, rejoins Tyrell on the show. Lance and Tyrell discuss the importance of churches and believers knowing what they believe, what they don’t believe, and why. Doctrine is more than merely theoretical, and while creeds and confessions are important and helpful, it is crucial that churches and believers know truth more deeply than merely being able to quote a document.

God designed human beings as thinkers. The same God inspired the writers of the Old and New Testaments to pen his truths. The Bible is a book, filled with doctrine, which defines what is good, right and true. We exist in desperate need of the unfolded mysteries that make up the content of Scripture if we will think correctly about life and godliness.

Episode 17: Theology Student Round Table

Episode 17: Theology Student Round Table

Theology is not a philosophical pursuit of abstract speculations about God. It is in fact the examination of that which God has revealed to us. As faithful students of the Word of God, we are, by necessity, students of theology. The two are not at odds with each other; rather they serve to complement one another. Whereas the Word of God is the foundation of our knowledge, theology is the expression of our knowledge. Thus, the study of God cannot be separated from the word of God.

Episode 10: How to Study the Bible

Episode 10: How to Study the Bible
/

Many people believe that theological study holds little value. They say, “I don’t need theology; I just need to know Jesus.” Yet theology is unavoidable for every Christian. It is our attempt to understand the truth that God has revealed to us—something every Christian does. So it is not a question of whether we are going to engage in theology; it is a question of whether our theology is sound or unsound. It is important to study and learn because God has taken great pains to reveal himself to his people. He gave us a book, one that is not meant to sit on a shelf pressing dried flowers, but to be read, searched, digested, studied, and chiefly to be understood.
