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? ;-)
