What about theological terms?

220px-Sandro_Botticelli_050 One of the reasons why Christians tend to disregard theology are theological terms. A barrier that is caused by language and illiteracy. Many also thought that since most of those words are not in the Bible, we should not bother studying them. Theological terms most of the time has an impression to the “laity” that such words can make the study of God’s word more and more complicated and confusing.  But I think that is not the case. The great theologians in church history have never intended to confuse us nor to make the study of the scripture complicated. In fact the very reason theologians use terminologies is to give distinctions and clarity. So how does this terms help us on understanding the scripture or distinguishing between heresies and the truth ?

Why Pray?

Prayer is one of the essentials of Christian life. It is one of the ways by which we can communicate with God. Even Jesus himself prayed to his father and so should we.

We take prayer very lightly that  most often we think one short prayer a day is okay and we’re good to go. Prayer is so important that it has to be like the air that we breathe. A need that we can’t live without. Most of the time we only pray just to ask something for ourselves and not really to thank him or not even to pray for others. I’m not saying that it’s wrong to pray because you’re asking God of something. It’s good because it shows that we depend on him in everything. What I’m trying to say is its wrong to pray if your motive in praying is just ask and ask and ask selfishly.
