Wayne's Random Thoughts…Monthly Round Up (May 2009)

This blog is growing almost every day. Last month, I started a monthly recap of the prior month’s posts in case new readers may have missed something. I was a little late with it last month, but this month I met my goal to get it out in the first week of the month. Rather than a sequential listing of the posts for the month, I thought this would be more useful if I grouped things by category. So, here are the posts to Wayne’s Random Thoughts for the month of May 2009:

Branches of the Systematic Theology Tree

tree-clipart-2I’m not sure why exactly God put it on my heart to compile this listing, but since he did I decided I better do it.  Theology is the study of God.  Within Systematic Theology, there are various branches concerning elements of that study.  Each has a very proper name.  The following is, very simply, a listing of those branches:

  • Theology Proper – study of the doctrine of God.
  • Bibliology – study of the Bible.
  • Christology – study of Jesus.
  • Pneumatology – study of the Holy Spirit.
  • Anthropology – study of humanity.
  • Soteriology – study of Salvation.
  • Ecclesiology – study of the Church.
  • Eschatology – study of last things or end times.
  • Prolegomena – study of methods and presuppositions before one does systematic theology (sometimes this involves the study of how God reveals himself).

The Blog Patrol (April 14, 2009)

Here is the second installment of our new weekly feature – The Blog Patrol.  In the Blog Patrol, I include some of the best blog posts from the prior week from the blogs that I monitor. We’ll see how it works out, and if it’s worth continuing. The first week’s entry seemed to be a hit.  On that note, welcome to the second weekly installment of “The Blog Patrol.”


These are the stragglers from the prior week which I either didn’t receive or find in time to add to last weeks Blog Patrol.  Enjoy!

Why is the Lord’s Supper so Rare?

  • Russel Moore has a look at why celebrating the Lord’s Supper is such a rare occurrence in some churches today.

Children and Bibles

  • This post looks at the value of having kids bring their Bibles to church.  This is something that has been weighing on me very heavily recently – how do we find age appropriate ways to familiarize young children with the Bible?
