What is bad theology?
To ask that question presupposes there is such a thing as 'good theology' which could be contrasted with the bad.
For people of Christian or any other religious faith there is a danger that we think of good theology as that theological position with which we agree. There is also a danger of thinking of bad theology as whatever is alien to the theological view we hold.
Aware that I am immediately falling into that latter trap, I still want to share with you 2 comments on good and bad theology with which I agree. They were written by Amos Smith.
"Good theology builds bridges and heals divisions in our minds and in our world."
"Bad theology builds walls between people, and promotes violence."
