Quotation Friday

“Theology is hence the critical reflection about this essential practice in the light of the gospel. It does not merely aim to understand the world differently; it wants to change the world as well.”  -Jurgen Moltmann (The Trinity and The Kingdom)

Not sure about you, but I know too many people doing theology separate from any desire to change the world. Our study of the scripture and longing to know God should move us to not only see the world as God sees it, but have the same hunger and longing for the redemption of creation that God has.
