on Who the Theologians Are

“Countless times I have heard Christians say, ‘Why do I need to study doctrine or theology when all I need to know is Jesus?’ My immediate reply is, ‘Who is Jesus?’ As soon as we begin to answer this question, we are involved in doctrine and theology. Every Christian is a theologian. Perhaps not a theologian in the technical or professional sense, but a theologian nevertheless. The issue for Christians is not whether we are going to be theologians but whether we are going to be good theologians. A good theologian is one who is instructed by God.

– R.C. Sproul, Knowing Scripture, p. 25
