Does your theology drive you to your knees to weep for people who disagree?
Or does it provoke a surge of self-righteousness and increased volume and overpowering tactics to prove your point?
Does your theology allow room for growth and imperfection and an eye-to-eye understanding of the whole story?
Or does it imprison a person into a one-dimensional caricature who must think exactly you like do, or else?
Does your theology look for ways to love and engage and move in? Or does it look for permission to cut off and shut down and divide?
Does your theology have grace for people with bad theology?
Or did you read this thinking “This is for them and not for me” …?
Without grace, our theology is only posturing, and that’s not what Jesus came to die for.
