Diocesan Theological Studies


Why study theology? Isn’t that just for our clergy and pastors?

 

Well no, it is for all of us because theology is the study of God and the things of God. “Theo” means God and “-ology” means “the study of”. It is for all of us to know God.

 

Now wouldn’t reading the Bible alone be enough? Yes, one can know God through reading the Bible only, but theology can help you a great deal because it takes a topic found in different parts of the Bible and brings it together for a comprehensive, consistent and coherent understanding of the topic. This understanding is then expressed in statements which allows us to express what we believe in amongst ourselves and to communicate to others clearly, especially in response to their inquiries and questions.

 

Theology is certainly useful for our spiritual growth and outreach!
