un-Biblical Theology

May 27, 2008

When discussing theology I find more and more people never once use the Bible as source for the core of their argument. They instead rely on the thoughts and ideas of other men, or in the worst cases the thoughts and ideas they have come up with. I instead have founded myself firmly in the Romans 3:4 concept, “Let God be true, but every man a liar.” No matter what how brilliant a man is, no matter what degree is attributed to their name, no matter how respected they are in the theological community, no matter how many times they claim to be inspired by God, if a man argues anything that contradicts the Bible what that man says is wrong. Founding a theological concept on the doctrine of any man or even angel is un-Biblical theology; theology outside of God’s words. 

Some will doubtless argue that the Bible is not the word of God, to those I provide the following scriptures all of which declare or assume that the scripture is God’s word: Deuteronomy 6:6-9, 17-18; Joshua 8:32-35; Psalms 1:2, 12:6, 19:7-11, 93:5, 119:9,11,18,89-93,130; Proverbs 30:5-6; Matthew 5:17-19, 22:29; Mark 13:31; Luke 16:17; John 2:22, 5;24, 10:35; Acts 17:11; Romans 10:17; Colossians 3:16; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Timothy 2:15, 3:15-17; 1 Peter 1:23-25; 2 Peter 3:15-16; Revelation 1:2, 22:18.

Having established that the Bible is the Word of God we must then judge every word that contradicts it as being contradictory to God Himself. Therefore, I never want to hear anymore theological arguments that are not founded on scripture. No matter how clever or clear an argument or concept seems, without scripture it is worthless.
