Chris and I (Lyell) decided to start this podcast out of a desire to talk about theology without all the arguing and fruitless debates that typically follow discussions on the Bible . Discussing theological topics (Jesus) shouldn’t be about who’s right or who’s wrong, but should be open ended and laced with heavy amounts of grace. Sure, there are certain hard-line-drawn-in-the-sand type topics that all Christians agree on but even inside some those discussion (see Creation) there are deeper questions found inside the question.
- Why do you believe what you believe?
- Where did you get the belief?
- Can it be backed up with scripture?
When Jesus was confronted with a theological question he always replied with truth and Bible. And by “bible” I mean a scriptural reference (the OT to Jesus). Even his responses that weren’t a direct quote from the Old Testament were some form of truth about what he was on earth to accomplish.
So let’s try that. Instead of approaching theological discussions with a mindset to change someone’s mind, let’s talk Bible and leave all the motives at the front door.
In essence, let’s be more like Jesus.
