missions/theology quote of the day

We believe that you really cannot be a good theologian unless you are also a passionate missionary at heart.  This does not mean you have to go to the nations full-time, but you certainly should be going some.  You should be praying and sending.  At the same time, you cannot be a good missionary unless you also have the passion of a theologian.  The two should not be separated.  The two need to be kept together.

Dr. Daniel Akin, President of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.

  1. you’d have to read the article linked in treven wax’s name and see if you can gleen anything from the article – it’s a good question though. It resonates with me but my guess is that the heart of theology is mission and a theology that leaves out mission is more or less defunct… if that make any sense.
