I’ve been in hunt of what I want to write on today. I love to write, but sometimes (like now) I simply do not know what to write on. I guess some people call it writers block, but I don’t like that. It’s not like I’m writing a song, or a book. It’s just a blog, on my thoughts. I don’t know why I sometimes struggle so much to find something to discuss. I hate it. But I’m trying to not go a day without at least writing something. With that, I suppose I’ll just mention something I read on a forum today that I actually found kind of interesting.
This person made the point that most of todays Christian theology comes from Paul. If you get into a debate with someone, most of the time they’re quoting Paul, or other letters in the NT…but hardly ever do you see people quoting Jesus to prove something. Why is this? Why didn’t Jesus teach us Christian theology? He does teach us somethings, but very little. It’s all in parables. And its mostly all about the walk we have in Christ. Also some stuff about hell too. But I can’t really recall him really saying anything in the subject of theology or apologetics. Why didn’t he teach what people (believers, Christians) are supposed to believe in…in detail? “And better yet, why didn’t he write it himself and make sure it was transmitted?”
This is the link to where you can find this. I basically said the same exact thing as he did in the post.
This is actually kind of a serious problem to me. Most of the things believers believe in weren’t even written by God, but by man. Not even written by Jesus himself. How could this possibly be a reliable thing? A reliable belief?
