Theology is Worshipful Art, not a Trump to Revelation

March 18th, 2013 by G.

I am quite taken with this article over at the Old Country.

Best quotes are this one–

believe in theology as a kind of worship. To spend time and effort in the attempt to reason out the philosophical context for and implications of Mormon doctrine is an affirmation of the authenticity with which we embrace that doctrine. Intellectually wrestling with the angels is thus properly seen as an individual responsibility rather than an institutional prerogative. Theology can never take the place of other forms of worship–from music to service–but it can and should exist alongside them.

–and this one–

it’s the activity of theology that can make members individually spiritually awake and alive, and that that activity is what the Church needs. To try another phrase: the Church doesn’t need theology, but it does need theologians.
