What is Theology?

Theology is derived from a Greek word ‘’theologia’’. It is the study of the nature of God, spirituality and other religious beliefs. Theology has been further diversified according to religions because each has its own divination, a form of worship and their supposed deity. Some are Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism.


Theology is being taken in schools and colleges as an academic discipline. Universities have this as a major course in their curriculum where interested persons enroll and train on theological themes and teachings. In universities, theological studies were closely focused on the life of faith and that of the church. It included practices like preaching, a celebration of mass and prayer.


Professionally, theology as a course can be available for training on Christian ministry and can be tied to specific denominations like the Roman Catholic, Protestants. The institution offers strict denomination training degrees, masters and PhDs. This is to contribute to the growth and development of Christian knowledge. The curriculum provides academic training for the future clergymen and teachers of the religious instruction.


Bible colleges and seminaries also train Christian ministers. Theology has its basis as the existence of God who can be known, is personal and has revealed Himself to all. Studies in theology include Bible studies, the study of God, the study of Jesus and the Holy Spirit, the study of man, the study of the fall, and study of salvation, the study of salvation, the study of demons, study of the church, and the study of future events.


The Christian theology also examines other religious theologies and non-Christian cults such as Mormonism, the Jehovah’s Witness among others. This theological examination compares these religions and cults with scriptures by determining what is true and right about God and can identify all the false about other beliefs and gods.

There are five kinds of theology which are natural theology, biblical theology, practical theology, dogmatic theology and theology proper. Also, while the topic of religious philosophy is one of a kind, the examination itself utilizes the same watchful techniques and indistinguishable stringent benchmarks from applying in different orders. These incorporate the investigation of the sacred writings in their unique dialects, thorough literary feedback, the conscientious examination and organization of confirmation, basic attention to past philosophical talk, and consistent reflection on the relations among religious philosophy and other scholastic offices especially the common sciences and logic.


Base on this investigation of philosophy there lay one clear preface: we couldn’t talk about God except if above all else he addressed us. Its territory was constrained to the universe of wonders, those articles which existed in time and space and were in this manner available to our faculties. Here reason could work skillfully, and here science could do its work. Be that as it may, God was no piece of this world, and thus reason accordingly could know nothing about him. It could neither demonstrate his reality nor offer any depiction of him. Theology needs a deeper study and clarity to avoid miscommunication and misunderstanding. Having a pastoral explanation on this is important while comparing to the biblical readings.
