We had a very interesting Sunday school class yesterday. The pastor was talking about theology. I've heard of several different types of theology before, like monotheism, atheism, etc., but this one was new.
He said that most Christians either have cat theology or dog theology. This perked up my ears and I was anxious to hear what he had to say.
He started with cat theology. Apparently, when a cat receives lots of love and attention and food, they then think, "I must be god!".
When a dog receives an abundance of love and attention they think, "You must be god."
I own both cats and dogs, and I am here to say that I agree wholeheartedly with these analogies. Here's how it relates to you and I:
Most Christians either believe that if they are getting lots of good things in life and attention, they must be god. Or, they think that because of the love and blessings that they've received, they are devoted to the one true God.
The interesting thing is that most Christians are reportedly cats in their theology. I am guessing they are the ones who are out there in the lime light and that would become a tempting way to believe.
I want to have dog theology. I want to see blessings in my life and instead of viewing myself as important at all, give all of the glory and loyalty back to God!
What's it going to be with you? Cat theology, or Dog theology?
