Theology as Discipleship // Keith L. Johnson.

If Socrates claims, “the unexamined life is not worth living,” then Johnson might equally claim, “the undisciplined life is not worth theologizing.” There is beauty in examining the life of God (theology) and creation in light of it. However, like all human endeavors, beauty diminishes in value and power when the gardens of our souls seize to be tended or when the muscles of our minds deteriorate to lack of exercise: examining the life of God must coalesce with participating in the life of Christ by the Spirit. To be in Christ is to think like Christ; to think like Christ is to be like Christ; to be like Christ is to be.
