The Bee Stings the ‘Pastor’ Who Doesn’t Know Anything About Theology

with one comment

Fact is, there are actually too many of this sort in the ministry

Contorting his face into a pained expression and covering the word in exaggerated air quotes, pastor Evan Duncan of Journey of Grace Church uttered the word “theology” Sunday morning as though it were some sort of bizarre obscenity, sources reported Monday. The event reportedly occurred as Duncan was explaining how “At Journey of Grace, we like to keep things simple,” during his sermon series titled “Knowing God.”

“I’m not a fan of churches that like to complicate things. I don’t know why pastors spend so much time worrying about things like . . . ‘theology,’” the preacher told his flock, the word immediately inducing Duncan to quietly clear his throat while shaking his head, as if he has a terrible taste in his mouth after uttering such a dirty, strange word. “Ugh. Sorry for saying that.” “Here at our church, we’re going to keep focusing on loving God and loving people—that’s it,” he assured congregants. “We’ll leave all the little details to the . . . ‘theologians,’” he declared, immediately pausing to frown and take a long drink from his water bottle.

  1. A pastor told me not long ago: “We should abolish theology; it can only cause division.” I replied as I could, politely but attempting to make a logical point, which, to this person, was pointless:
    So, you want to abolish that which has the potential of explaining the difficult aspects of our faith so on that explanation we can indeed peacefully unite in trade for a continued of a preferred apparent unit on error in order to have an artificial peace? Hmmm Very interesting!
    BTW, I love the BEE!
    Note: I can’t believe I even talk with these people!!! (I will leave the gender of this pastor out thereby sort of revealing it…)
