Perhaps the most compelling reason as to the importance of theology and to do it even if it seems complicated is the discipleship of the mind. Theology is the discipleship of the mind. Deut. 6:1-24 and Matthew 22:37 both address the importance of our belief in God and living obediently, which happens to include loving God and others with all our being. The Apostle Paul makes an appeal to us in Romans 12:1-2 about the importance of the renewal and transformation of our mind onto the things of God so we might worship God properly and follow God’s will. When we engage in theology in the contemplation of the act and being of our faith we are getting a look at the inner dynamic of a life of faith and its desire to understand what is believed.
