I was thinking about doctrine the other day. A friend of mine was talking and she kept bringing up theology and how we don't know theology. Well, is it that we don't know theology or doctrine?

I have to say that I grew up with a keen interest in theology and doctrine. I'd spend my allowance buying books and concordances and all kinds of Bible helps. i have always had an interest in these things, but then after college it went dormant for a bit and has recently reawakened in me.

Unfortunately, I come across as argumentative and difficult. I obviously need to work on that but it seems that no one else really cares about the things I care about. In fact, as much as I see that I isolate myself through my questions, I really don't care today. I don't care at all if people like me or think I'm strange. I don't care.

I've embraced apathy. As one of my favorite 80's Christian artists once sang:

"Life unwinds like a cheap sweater, but since I gave up hope I feel a lot better." - Steve Taylor

I don't care anymore. About people. I still care about doctrine. Wait; is that even a proper doctrinal thing to say? ;-)


  1. Nice post Victoria. I believe that most of us deal with what you describe in your post. The thing about people is... can't live with them, can't live w/out them :) It would be boring if everybody talked only about one topic, not to mention we wouldn't learn much of anything else. That's how God made you. He made others different. Like Emerson said: "Not good or bad, just different." I am sure you can like doctrine and people :)

  2. Hmmmmm.. not sure. :-)
