Derived from the Greek words theos (God) and logos (words), theology quite literally means ‘to speak of God’. In Kelly Kapic’s work, A Little Book for New Theologians, he highlights how all who speak of God are consequently doing theology. Hence, contrary to Christian historic perception, theology is not a word designated just for those in scholasticism or academia, but also the common place. However, it is imperative to point out how the word theology has taken on its own life within the history of Christianity. Throughout Church history there have been multiple attempts to fully define theology.
Doctrine & Discipline is the Papyrus' newest section. Doctrine literally means "teaching" and commonly connotes some theological discourse. Discipline refers to a branch of knowledge within higher education. Thus, as a Christian higher education institution, we thought it is appropriate to dedicate a section of the school's newspaper to teaching & knowledge. Therefore, we bring you D&D in the hopes of bringing about reflective and insightful discussions across campus. In order to do so, however, we must begin by stating our prolegomena.
