Jolt Quote V

"The purpose of theology is doxology." (JI Packer)

I am thankful for Dr Packer's wise words. This is so necessary as many theological institutions seem more intent on impartings skills to students instead of values and spiritual & character formation. Spiritual maturity is not defined in terms of knowledge and skills but the awareness that in spite of the knowledge and the skills, one is still humble to kneel in our brokenness and acknowledge that Jesus is Lord. All praise be to God!

This is in essence the pursuit of truth. As we pursue God in the theological realm, we are reminded that theology, science and all forms of learning, if it is rightfully gained, must lead us to the ultimate goal ==> THANKSGIVING TO GOD.

"The pursuit of truth will set you free — even if you never catch up with it."
— Clarence Darrow, American lawyer (1857-1938)

We will seek and know the truth, and the truth shall set us free.
