Theology Only Makes Sense if Your'e Not the One Suffering

"Theology Doesn't Help" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward

Here Jesus is in the exact same scenario as Job was with his comforters.

All the theology in the world only satisfies those who aren't suffering.

To those who are suffering, no matter how pious, lofty, or holy the words are, they do nothing to abate the pain.

I claim almost all theology is created from a place of privilege.

Just look at the theologies that aren't...

Black theology. LGBTQ theology. Liberation theology. Disability theology...

any theology that is on the side of the suffering, the oppressed, the marginalized... is considered radical and even offensive... not included in the main stream.

Because theology only makes sense if you're not the one suffering.

    This reminds me of the current fight the women are facing about women’s rights theology. #notgoinghome
