Throughout history, Christians have witnessed great division as a consequence of theological disharmony. Arguably, the pursuit of a theological framework has lead many unassuming believers down a dangerous path of heresy and apostasy. Teachers and students of the subject have been classified as arrogant and unloving as a result of their dogmatic approach to biblical topics.
God never changes, His Word is truth from beginning to end, it matters not if you are English, Spanish, French or even “Sweed,” the glorious pictures and words from God the Father, His Son Jesus Christ with the guidance of the Holy Spirit speak to every language and every heart.
Death, destruction, and heartbreak abound in a world that seems to be spiraling out of control. Most days, it’s depressing. On the worst days, it’s overwhelming. So we ask, how do we find hope in a world that seems so hopeless?

Why does Christ’s divinity matter? Why does our understanding of who Jesus is have to be informed by Scripture? These are questions that some will ask when approaching theological topics such as the incarnation of Christ.
