A Meditation for Intellectuals

We cannot have a relationship with our christology-we can have a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our soteriology cannot save us from our sins-our Savior can.

Our ecclesiology does not make us one-the Lord of the Church does.

Our eschatology will not transform this flawed universe-Jesus the King of kings and Prince of Peace will do that.

And no matter how much we love theology-it will never love us back.

[Mark Allan Powell, quoted in the Jesus Creed, pages 190-191]

  1. Well said!

    In a lot of blog posts by emerging church people recently one would get the impression that we are saved by various ologies.
