The Logos.

It is not possible to over-emphasize the power and the impact of the LOGOS — the Beginning of all Time.

God teaches all men. Now sit down. And be humble.

Totally agree. I have been studying modern theology for a long time, but a recent study on Calvin’s institutes just made me marvel at his work and regretting why I haven’t read this before. Now I would recommend to someone who wants to know ‘what book would you recommend to a Christian next to the Bible?’ it is certainly the institutes.

First and foremost, Christians will learn theology by reading, searching, and studying the Word of God (Acts 17:11, 2 Timothy 2:15). Be prayerful and take your time going through scripture for your growth. As helpful tools, I would go to commentaries, concordances, Bible dictionaries, etc. I would also check commentaries from good study Bibles; I use my John MacArthur study Bible, Ryrie's study Bible, and my Henry Morris study Bible. Though all three may have opposing views on a particular verse or set of verses, I find it actually helpful to study the scriptures and go evaluate the comments based on content, context, and grammar. The bottom line, keep reading and seeking the Lord in His Word because of your love of God, as well as love for His Word (think all of Psalm 119).

God has gifted each one of us with unique spiritual gifts to edify the body of believers. It has always been beyond me why Christians would scorn the insights of a gifted theologian or teacher in their studies to know God better all because they want to say they did it their own way through reading scripture only. Studying theology does not mean you stop reading your bible to read dusty books that can double as doorstops instead. How can it possibly be a point worth bragging about that we have ignored such a valuable resource as these gifted individuals God has provided for us with insights into our study of God? I find such an attitude debilitating to the church which has caused us to lose valuable knowledge which enriches joy and strengthens faith and shines a spotlight on truth.

Indeed, prayer and reading of the Scriptures is paramount for any theological study as well as reading texts for one’s own side. Important as these things are, understanding and researching the other side is likewise important and should not be neglected.

@ Salvation the born-again believer is sealed with the Holy Spirit.
👇🏻
"Ephesians 1:13"
✨In him you also, having heard the word of the truth, the Good News of your salvation—in whom, having also believed, you were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, 
👇🏻
"1 John 2:27"
✨This Anointing (our indwelling Holy Spirit of God) is enough to teach theology for the born-again believer.
As for you, the anointing which you received from him remains in you, and you don’t need for anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is no lie, and even as it taught you, you will remain in him.

There are enough examples in the Bible to indicate to us that our Father will use anything to teach "Theology" to the children that His Son's blood has redeemed. Maybe a donkey too….

We don't go anywhere to learn theology. Theology means "THEOS = God" & "LOGIA = Utterance/speech". When "Theos" (our God) comes into us @ Salvation, our old human self dies & we are born anew in Christ. HE becomes the source of all teaching ("LOGIA").

Not necessary to say but man… Michael Reeves voice is the reformed world's Morgan Freeman. Change my mind…

Don't know. Genesis 6 and the real reason why the flood happened are not taught. Anywhere.

Ligonier has a treasure of sound Biblical teachers! If you are new to Reformed Theology I recommend Steve Lawson's book series A Long Line Of Godly Men. You can purchase them on amazon and they give a brief history of some of the great heroes of the faith, like Jonathon Edwards, George Whitefield, William Tyndale, Charles Spurgeon and John Calvin just to name a few. They are amazing and very affordable! 🦅
