Denis Diderot, the 18th century French philosopher said of theology “Only a very bad theologian would confuse the certainty that follows revelation with the truths that are revealed. They are entirely different things.”
And that’s the point – theology is rarely about unearthing absolutes but more about plumbing the unfathomable riches of God. Can there be a more energizing endeavour!
Over the last year a small group of us representing the Baptist Colleges, BUGB and BMS World Mission have been planning an intensive theology week under the banner ‘Hearts and Minds’. I have to say I am delighted at the outcome and look forward to a stimulating week later this month.
I dont know if there are any places left but do contact Regents Park College if you're interested.
