Tristan Carnahan’s short film “Theology Matters,” based on the book Dug Down Deep by Joshua Harris:
I’ve come to learn that theology matters. And it matters not because wewant a good grade on a test but because what we know about God shapes the way we think and live. What you believe about God’s nature—what he is like, what he wants from you, and whether or not you will answer to him—affects every part of your life.
Theology matters, because if we get it wrong, then our whole life will be wrong. . . .
Knowledge doesn’t have to be dry and lifeless. And when you think about it, exactly what is our alternative? Ignorance? Falsehood? We’re either building our lives on the reality of what God is truly like and what he’s about, or we’re basing our lives on our own imagination and mis-conceptions.
We’re all theologians. The question is whether what we know about God is true.
