Theology is the study of life

When we study God we are not just trying to understand who God is.  We are also attempting to learn the answers to the deep questions of life:  “Why am I here?”; “Why is there suffering?”;  “Am I loved?”; “What does it mean to be human?”; “What gives life meaning and purpose?”, etc.

As we come to know God, we come to know ourselves and gain answers.  This is why it is it important for us who have faith to continue to study the One who gave us life.  When we have big questions, this is not an indication of doubt but rather, as St. Anselm said, it is “faith seeking understanding.”
