Christian theology matters because it is about God. Sustained contemplation about God through the Scriptures matters because what we believe about God is extended into our confession and mission. It is not an impatient work. And, to be clear, Christianity does not serve or reflect on a God-in-general. No, He has revealed Himself as the three-fold divine perfection: Trinity. And, also not to be mistaken, God is not, first, functional or useful. He simply is and is worthy of worship as He has revealed Himself. If Christian theology is “God and all things relative to God,” then it matters that we don’t make hasty applications about the God we may not know. And this is why it matters for all people, not just academics.
