Let me preface by saying the doctrine matters; it matters a lot. Some things are correct, and some things are incorrect. Theology, the study of God, is something all believers should dive into. How can we come to know God if we do not study Him? Having said that….great thoughts here from Insanitybytes. Comments closed here; blessings and enjoy.
Heard a lovely man say, “before you go out the door, remember to hang you theology and doctrine on a hook and pick up your love.” I sure liked that analogy. We hang our doctrine and theology up because it is precious, because it has worth and value. If we didn’t respect it, we’d just kick it off and throw it in a pile on the floor, like my kids used to do with some of their things.
No one is suggesting we throw it out or kick it under the bed, never to be seen again. You hang it up carefully on a hook where you can easily find it.
The thing is, you can’t really go out the door carrying a big load of doctrine and a big load of love at the same time. You just look like a mix between a one man band and a bag lady, clanging symbols and all.
I simply must poke some fun here, being on the internet and bumping into other Christians can be an eye-opening experience, one that sometimes reminds me that ignorance is bliss. Speaking of hanging things on a hook, I feel like there are simply some people who could really benefit from being stuffed in a locker with a giant wedgie.…..read the rest of the post here: Hang it on a Hook…
