Does theology affect “doing church” (or academics)?

May 12, 2009

Here is an article worth reading and pondering:

Look, It’s Rubbish! by Carl Trueman

Does a person’s theology affect the way they do church? I.e., the way they conduct a church/worship service? (Yes, I know, a worship service is only one part of “doing church,” but it’s an important part–and the only part I’m talking about at the moment.) Or you could reverse the question: what does a church/worship service tell you about the planners theology?

Second, Does a person’s theology affect the way they do academics? A related question, though it might not seem to be at first glance.

Trueman’s essay is thoughtful and “spot on.”
