Theology: Both/And

‎If theology were to lose its freedom to criticize, it would turn into the ideology of the church in its existing forms. If it were to lose the fellowship of the church, it would stop being Christian theology & turn into a kind of science of religion. As Christian theology, theology has to remind the church of the lordship of Christ and has to insist that the church’s form be an authentic one.

~Moltmann, The Church in the Power of the Spirit, 7.
