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]
