Building on grass

Posts like this remind me why Jeff Weddle is one of my most favorite bloggers:
Theology is not always based on Scripture. Much theology is based on what some guy said about Scripture. We then take a stand on our theology, build a reputation for standing for that theology, and we get stuck.

Even if we see cracks in our theology, maybe even the walls start to crumble around us, but we’ve got our group and our guys and we’ve bought all their books and it would hurt our reputation to admit we were wrong and to change.
Amen. And if you haven't already gotten a copy, you might enjoy Jeff's book on money.

The more meticulously tight the theology, the more it will be offended by the Scripture. Where that happens is where the theology's explaining stops and the explaining away begins. It is a vanity, and striving after wind.

Amen. That idea of tightness and offense is a keeper. Thanks once again.
