New Theology

"To say that the church on the other side needs a new theology is not to suggest heresy.  It is simply to distinguish between the message (God's truth, revelation, action, and expression) and theology (our task, our work, our language, our search to understand and articulate God's message).  In the old church we too often forgot that the two are different....In the new church we will try harder to remember that God is God and we are mere creatures, and that our attempts to understand and articulate his message and truth are always approximations."
