What’s in a Name?

For the regular church-goer, theology is often a frightening word. It connotes lofty speech that is yawn-inspiring, manipulative, or devisive (depending on your experience). I aim to change that.

Theology simply means “the study of the truth of God.” From the Christian worldview, we’re talking about Jesus. Anything about Jesus is theological by nature. So, when I’m talking about Jesus, or the church, it’s Technically Theology. Follow?
Seeing Him and what He’s done is meant to fill us with awe, which leads to doxology [praise of His glory].

I’ve also worked in the technology industry for over 5 years now, and I’ve come to love the gadgets that just work. Especially when they work for those who aren’t in that field. I won’t deceive you, I’m a bit biased toward apple-flavored goodies, but I can still appreciate other well-made tools. I’ll certainly focus on how to use them to tell others the truth about what Christ did on the cross, so you too can be Technically Theological. We’ll also look at high quality apps out there, best practices for buying/using these shiny toys, and rumors of rumors.

These are two things I know and seem to talk with people about most: Reformed Theology-specifically what Christ did as our substitute at the cross and the wonderful implications of that event, and technology that helps us tell others about it. I just thought I’d put it all in one place.
Feel free to comment, disagree, expand, whatever. I don’t have it all figured out. In fact, nearly all of what is on this website is something a wiser man said. I’m just parroting it. Hope some of you find it helpful.

Soli Deo Gloria.

Your young fool,

It was inevitable.

I had to start at some point. Blogging has been going on since around 1994. I was only 5 then, but I’ve got most people around me thinking I’m “technically savvy”. I apologize for not beginning earlier.

The aim here is to keep an intelligent, running commentary on the Gospel, the state of the church today, and technology-especially apple flavored.

I’ll explain the name of the blog in another post soon, but for now, I’ll just say, “Hello World.”

UPDATE: Here’s the full explanation of the blog’s title: What’s in a Name?
