What has 'theology' ever said that is of the smallest use to anybody? When has 'theology' ever said anything that is demonstrably true and is not obvious? What makes you think that 'theology' is a subject at all?

Richard Dawkins

Worm theology is too high for me.

Jack Miller

Blessed are the ears that hear the pulse of the divine whisperer, and give no heed to the many whisperings of the world.

Thomas Kempis

My theology, briefly, is that the universe was dictated but not signed.

Christopher Morley

When someone is giving you their theology, their God words, you should listen hard and be very gentle. The time to deliver your God words is when you are asked.

Real Live Preacher

I'm an enemy of what I call 'computer theology.' There's a class conflict out there. There's a techno-elite that lives in a different world.

Walter Mossberg

If your theology feeds the killers and if millions of your members support the killers, even though they're a minority, you have, in my opinion, a terrorist organization.

Michael Graham

REPROBATION, n. In theology, the state of a luckless mortal prenatally damned. The doctrine of reprobation was taught by Calvin, whose joy in it was somewhat marred by the sad sincerity of his conviction that although some are foredoomed to perdition, others are predestined to salvation.

Ambrose Bierce

When the Devil quotes Scriptures, it's not, really, to deceive, but simply that the masses are so ignorant of theology that somebody has to teach them the elementary texts before he can seduce them.

Paul Goodman

Bishop Smith is trying to force his theology on to these six churches.

Cynthia Brust

Mormonism is not simply a commitment to a theology or a church practice, but a social-cultural order.

Sterling M. Mcmurrin

I'm not trying to provide any information that has to do with theology here. All we've thought is about the natural process. What theologians or anybody else does with that it's their business so to speak.

Doron Nof

The best theology would need no advocates; it would prove itself.

Karl Barth

While many religious conservatives may have qualms with aspects of Mormon theology, they have even greater problems with religious bigotry. Any candidate that chooses to attack his faith in a personal fashion will surely run the risk of a backlash.

Michael Cromartie

The result has been that although few conservative Presbyterian churches actually worship in the Puritan way, the Puritan theology of worship remains the standard orthodoxy among them. This discrepancy sometimes leads to guilty consciences.

John Frame

There is only one theology, but there are many theologians.

Athenagoras I

It's theology of the hammer. We feel that if you can demonstrate God's love by swinging a hammer, we'd love to have you.

Nathan Thompson

I know the established Christian theology... I know the enemy, but the enemy doesn't know me. Thus the enemy has already lost the war.

Sun Myung Moon

Theology is the effort to explain the unknowable in terms of the not worth knowing.

H. L. Mencken

The Baptists' basic theology is that if you hold someone under water long enough, he'll come around to your way of thinking. It's a ritual known as 'Bobbing for Baptists.'

A. Whitney Brown

You mean 'Injustice Sunday II', ... is using religion to alienate people rather than to bring people together. It has more to do with politics than with theology. I'm disappointed that clergy would be leading such a divisive call.

Timothy Mcdonald

Theology is just what you really think about God, and if you're going to do that, you'd better use your mind and not just let it be a receptacle - a catch-all for whatever beliefs happen to be passing by.

Dallas Willard

The tension and fighting during this time was about trade, not theology.

Frank Lambert

EXTINCTION, n. The raw material out of which theology created the future state.

Ambrose Bierce

The best theology is rather a divine life than a divine knowledge.

Jeremy Taylor

In today's schools, 'religious studies' has almost entirely replaced theology.

Avery Dulles

Instead of sitting in a classroom here on this very elite campus and talking about liberation and anti-colonial and anti-empire theology and black theology and feminist theology, let's give students the opportunity to be in a place where those issues are the daily life of the people. So now they're not just studying about these people. They're studying with them.

Harmon Wray

It seems obvious to me that the notion of God has never been anything but a kind of ideal projection, a reflection upward of the human personality, and that theology never has been and never can be anything but a more and more purified mythology.

Alfred Loisy

Jewish studies has now moved from its traditional place in Catholic institutions, which is a minor place in the theology department where courses on the Hebrew Scripture have been taught, to a program that is much more expansive.

Dwayne Carpenter

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Mikhail Bakunin

When theology erodes and organization crumbles, when the institutional framework of religion begins to break up, the search for a direct experience which people can feel to be religious facilitates the rise of cults.

Daniel Bell

Theology made no provision for evolution. The biblical authors had missed the most important revelation of all! Could it be that they were not really privy to the thoughts of God?

Edward O. Wilson
