Mr O, last week I met up with a group of friends, all Christians, and before long we had a strong disagreement about the importance of doctrine. It got a bit out of hand.
Tell me more.
It all began when Nick, one of the group, told us that he was reading a book on systematic theology, that it was as dry as sawdust, that it bored him, and that he just couldn’t see that doctrine mattered that much. Three or four agreed with him, while the rest of us certainly didn’t. Things got quite heated.
Well, I suppose you are asking what line I would have taken, if I had been there. And that is easy to answer.
Go on then, Mr O, tell me.
