THEOLOGY & THEORY

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.
