UNDERSTANDING OUR ICON
Christian theology is made up of a selection of different ideas about life’s main issues – birth, death, identity, purpose, value and the future.
It looks like this boxed puzzle: It is all neat and tidy because theologians like to have all the answers.
But what if God wants to say something that does not fit? That is the premise of Pentecost. God is continuing His revelation to mankind. But most theology is tied up in a box allowing nothing new.
Here is what we must do. Turn the outside edges of theology to the inside, let the cross be the center of our theology and let God speak to us anew. Then we can say, I preach Christ and Him crucified.
