theology

“My image of theology is not ‘A safe stronghold is our God’. It is the exodus of God’s people, on the road to the promised land of liberty where God dwells. For me, theology is not an inner-church or postmodern dogmatics, designed only for one’s own community of faith. Nor is it for me the cultural study of the civil religion of bourgeois society. Theology springs out of a passion for God’s kingdom and its righteousness and justice, and this passion grows up in the community of Christ. In that passion, theology becomes imagination for the kingdom of God in the world, and for the world in God’s Kingdom.”
~Jurgen Moltmann, Experiences in Theology
