So many THEO’s are going on in the Church today and one must be careful which one s/he does:
THEOPHILIA Love for God =Affection to God.
THEOSEBIA Devotion to God =Reverence for God.
These refer to the height of divine worship and the most important.
THEOLOGIA Talk of God =Understanding God.
This refers to the depth of divine scriptural wisdom and of great importance.
This is the focus of “conservatives”.
THEORIA Comparative observation =Speculative analysis;
(theoros =contemplating as distinct from competing in a theatre).
This refers to the breadth of human secular wisdom and of some importance.
This is the focus of “liberals” as though THEORIA is THEOLOGIA.
THEOSTUGIA Hatred for God =Rebellious anti-religion.
This refers to the evil of Satanism and of negative importance.
This is the territory of some in the Church and much of the society.
