Theology & Doctrine
This course seeks to establish the theological foundation for pursuing the (other) liberal arts and sciences by introducing the biblical, historical and philosophical roots of (Christian) theism’s concept of God. Understanding of the subject grows by examining such topics as Christology, Pneumatology, Soteriology, Eschatology, etc. Students are introduced to six fundamental branches of Theology—Biblical, historical, natural, philosophical, systematic and practical—and the unique contribution each makes to our attempts to speak responsibly about God.
Introduction to the study of Theology and theological systems and approaches. Theology Proper: The existence, personality, nature, attributes and work of God, the Trinity, the person and work of God the Father, election. Bibliology: the inspiration, authority, canonicity of Scripture, the place of Scripture in revelation. Christology: the person and work of Christ including his deity, humanity, virgin birth, death, resurrection and work of atonement. Pneumatology: the person, work, deity and importance in the lives of Christians today.
Anthropology: The creation, fall and death of man, the image of God, mans present situation and eternal status. Hamartology: the existence of sin and evil in creation, its application to mankind, its defeat by the work of Christ. Soteriology: the application of the atonement as received by man, the study of reconciliation, justification, propitiation, and redemption in the life of the believer, grace and sanctification. Eschatology: definition and order of the unfulfilled events in the plan of God, the rapture, tribulation, millennium and eternal state.
