Bad Theology

Originally uploaded by SouthernBreeze

In a previous entry, I had shared that I didn’t write much – if at all – about religion, theology and the like in this blog. And, that’s correct.

However, in my photostream – photoblog/phlog/phoblog, etc., whatever you want to call it (I think I’ll call it “phlog”) – I do write about such things.

Go figure.

Here’s one such example.

Bon apétit!

Some folks (certain Protestant denominations) make open mock and deride theological seminary, calling them “cemetery,” as if seminary is a place for one’s remains spiritually. The word “theology” itself is a combination of two Latin words – “theos” and “logos” meaning meaning “God” and “talk,” respectively. Seminaries are places where higher education is promulgated, especially to prepare one for ministry. Whether they are called “seminary” or not, any place where one goes to learn about God is a theological seminary. Thus, many so-called “Bible Colleges” are theological seminaries – even the independent ones.

Interestingly, numerous independent “Bible Colleges” and other “Bible Training Institutes” or “Bible Schools” teach unorthodox ideas – those ideas which have neither long-standing, nor broad acceptance – and yet, such adherents neither consider themselves rebellious nor unorthodox, even though the interpretation of such teachings have neither demonstrated historical, nor apostolic support. Further, unbeknown to them, orthodox theological traditions neither support, nor lend credence to the idea colloquially termed “blab it and grab it,” which is taught in many such institutions.

BIAGI is based upon an idea that a person has the same type authority and power as the Almighty, vis a vis when Creation was made ex nihilo (out of nothing) by speaking forth a word or words.

Such ideas as BIAGI are inherently heretical in scope and nature because they rest upon the lie uttered by the one Jesus called “the father of lies” when that evil one said to the mother of all living (Eve) “you will be like God.” Genesis 3:5b
