Welcome to Theologian's Corner! We're absolutely ecstatic that you took the time to check us out! We here at Theologian's Corner believe that correct, biblical doctrine is vital, and essential for the spiritual growth of believers in Christ. Our mission is to exhort disciples of Christ to embrace a robust, God-centered worldview, and to urge Christians to become theologians themselves who "rightly handle the word of truth." The church of Jesus Christ in America is in desperate need of the knowledge of God. Humanistic and pagan ideologies plague modern Christian thought, and render much Christian work useless and powerless. This ought not to be so. The foundation on which we stand, and the source where all Christian ideology must derive is the inspired, inerrant, and sufficient word of God. It is our intention to combat secular philosophy with biblical philosophy.
     Why is sound, biblical doctrine so utterly necessary? Here are three brief reasons:
  1. It produces correct thinking about God, and all matters pertaining to life. I don't believe any doctrine is impractical. Some doctrines may be explicitly practical - like believing in Christ for salvation or not committing adultery - but all doctrines hold some practicality. All of our theology either explicitly or implicitly affects the way we live our lives.
  2. It produces pure love, a good conscience, and a sincere faith. In 1 Timothy 1:3-5, Paul is urging Timothy to charge men not to teach any different doctrine. Then, in verse five he says, "The aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith." Therefore, this deduction can be made: one of the effects of teaching sound doctrine is the production of pure love, a good conscience, and a sincere faith in those who receive it.
  3. It produces maturity, and an attribute of maturity is discernment. The verse supporting this is quite self-explanatory, "And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for the building up of the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, in Christ..." (Ephesians 4:11-15)
Our greatest desire is that God would be given the worship, adoration, and obedience of your heart. May the manifold glories and excellencies of God be heralded through us here, and every place. Jesus Christ is worthy of all glory and exaltation. We passionately believe that, and we will zealously preach that. We hope that you will be intellectually challenged, strengthened in your inner person, and gain a higher view of God through our efforts.

     God bless,
