When Christians Love Theology More Than People by S. Mattson
I first saw this mentioned on Defend The Sheep’s Twitter account.
I’ve been thinking the last few months of writing a similar essay. The guy who wrote this arrived at some of the same conclusions I have.
(Link): When Christians Love Theology More Than People by S Mattson
Here is how the introduction starts:
- Beyond the realm of churches, religious blogs, and bible colleges, nobody really cares about theology. What does matter is the way you treat other people.
- Within Christendom, we’re often taught the exact opposite: that doctrines, traditions, theologies, and distinct beliefs are the only things that do matter. It’s what separates churches, denominations, theologians, and those who are “saved” and “unsaved.”
- ….When I’m sick, and you bring me a meal, I don’t care whether you’re a Calvinist or Arminian.
