But after reflecting on the goals and the reasons why we have to reflect and take all of them in account I realize that I will still have a misperception of God, for I haven’t taken everything in account. 4

I believe that if I as well as my church leaders had become skilled to do theology the Smith describes it that it will have a great influence on my life, ministry and church. For I know and understand that we as humans has errors in interpretation and therefore we cannot always be sure we interpreted it the right way, we are dependent on the Holy Spirit to lead us. Also if we evaluate we need to revisit interpretations, in order to test everything and approve those that is creditable. If we discuss the topic and thoughts with other believers it will leave an impression on both parties. Also in comparison between texts and idea may lead to new findings or even a greater understand. I believe if we use these guidelines it will not only change the way I or church leaders experience God but it will leave a footprint in the lives of people we lead because we’ll live up to the Mandate, disciple – in other words, teach what you understand and explore within guidelines. I feel David captures the heart of theology: ‘You have said, “Seek my face.” My heart says to you, “Your face, LORD, do I seek.”’ Psalm 27:8, Smith (2013). 5

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
