What is theology exactly? Is it the study of God? The written Word? Theology actually is the study of God and His relationship with the universe. It is the study of the doctrine of divinity and the specific form and system of this study. Theology is something we study to pass the truths of God on. It took me five years to attain a degree in theology, only three to become a psychotherapist. There is much depth to the study of theology. What about the definition of faith? Faith is the only avenue of coming near to God. You cannot overemphasize the fact that faith is essential to one?

ANNE LOUISE Maybe it's me ... but doesn't American English need new words for family relationships? Living in this day and age of blended families -- and I don't mean the ones that drink Frappuccino -- I find myself at a loss to describe some of the relationships entailed therein. Sure, there are stepson, stepmom, and evil stepmom -- oops, that's probably just at our house -- stepbrother/sister and half brother/sister. That's quite a few words, and you would think those would cover things, but they don't.
