Theology is Spirituality

Posted: November 12, 2012 by doulos tou Theou in Christianity, Discipleship, The Christian Life

“All theology is also spirituality, in the sense that it has an influence, good or bad, positive or negative, on its recipients’ relationship or lack of relationship with God. If our theology does not quicken the conscience and soften the heart, it actually hardens both; if it does not encourage the commitment of faith, it reinforces the detachment of unbelief; if it fails to promote humility, it inevitably feeds pride.”

– J. I. Packer, A Quest for Godliness (Wheaton, 1994), page 15.
