Loving God with Our Minds

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength  ~Mark 12:30
Our church is going to publish a series of blog posts from written by the first class of students in our theology program. They are now in the second 10 week course of the program entitled Bibliology & Hermeneutics. Each student has been tasked with writing a blog post about their impression and thoughts of one session from the course.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength ~Mark 12:30

Christians are called to love God with all their minds so Lakeside is offering a program of Christian theology (study of God) and apologetics (defending the faith) created with all believers in mind. The Theology Program (TTP) seeks to give people who may never have the time, ability, or circumstances that allow them to attend full-time seminary the same opportunity to study the great and rich Christian heritage of truth. This program is designed to engage Christians in a deep level of theological training that has traditionally only been offered at seminaries.

TTP equips the student to answer questions like these:
  • How do we know what books belong in the Bible?
  • Do all religions lead to God?
  • So many churches—what is the big difference?
  • Why does everyone seem to interpret the Bible differently?
  • The doctrine of the Trinity—can someone explain this?
  • Why should I study theology?
  • So many versions of the Bible... Which one do I use?
  • What about those who have never heard about Christ?
  • Why does God allow bad things to happen?
  • What is the difference between Protestants and Catholics?
There are six courses in the program of 10 weeks each:
  1. Introduction to Theology
  2. Bibliology & Hermeneutics
  3. Trinitarianism
  4. Humanity & Sin
  5. Soteriology
  6. Ecclesiology & Eschatology
