The bible is the source where all people can learn theology. Studying Theology in a prestigious school is not time well spent. I think people can learn the bible on their own, but the instruction to do good can be acquired from someone who has the spiritual gift of teaching. And, people should listen to people who have spiritual gifts from the Lord. Not only are they missing out on their time to learn the scriptures on their own, and asking for spiritual gift, but are not spending the limited time we have on earth. God placed us on the earth so we can worship Him. He never forces people to believe, or to obey, but has given certain leaders of the people a privilege to be Godly people who instruct, and encourage one another in the meeting of each other.
What kind of fellowship do Christians have when they only see each other on their Sunday worship? In fact, every weekend Christians, Catholics, and Protestants, break the Sabbath every time by not congregating on Saturday because they are not honoring the rest day. Instead after Sunday mass they go in their own lives in that same day to indulge, and even revel in their own lives. If it was the Sabbath(rest day) , and if they believed in their bibles they would listen to God’s people and come to praise God on the real rest day. They can only see each other, but not in the real Sabbath day. The rest day of the Lord given to humanity so that the soul can rest on rest day(Sabbath). The rabbis always practiced Sabbath from the earliest traditions of Moses, and it is the most reasonable people to listen, and believe because of the longest record of celebrating the Sabbath, and other commandments to celebrate. I think the Jewish people are the best in recording events and remembering to keep God’s commands in accordance to scripture.
Theology is not needed to serve God, only the reliance of the bible, and faith in God, with dedication to study is needed to serve God. Self-teaching of the bible is the greatest form of education one can receive. It is free to do, and it should only cost the price of a bible which can be purchased at any store for a reasonable price. The study of God is only through the bible, not through the study of ancient Greek, and Hebrew, although this can be studied if one wants to study these languages; these languages can be studied on ones own time, through Self-teaching. Anyone can learn to do good regardless of the study of ancient, biblical Hebrew and Greek, it takes a seeker of truth to find a leader who practices the commands all year long, and is well grounded in their faith. Or, better yet become a leader through the self-study of God’s holy book.
