Theology Proper

By definition theology is the study of God, but normally we use the word to speak of all biblical truths or doctrines. Theology Proper is a term used to describe the study of God Himself. As A. W. Tozer wrote: “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” In […]

Soteriology

A consistent theme in Scripture, from humanity’s corruption at the fall in Genesis chapter three to the final chapter in Revelation, is mankind’s need for deliverance from sin.
