Nobody read the BLOGS anymore, but I was stuck on 29, so I guess going thirty I can explain myself. I have had people ask me what TRIOLOGY means and it is simple enough but when you think about the three prong aspects of studying God and His plan for us, it comes down to THEOLOGY.Triology is pronounced TRY-ology and not Tree-ology! But here is an explanation of the TRI-ology method of studying God:
1. Biblical Theology
Biblical Theology is just what it says, learning about God by reading and studying God breathed and inspired Word. When we study Biblical Theology we believe that God is telling us the truth and we take Him at His word.
2. Systematic Theology
Remember the scientific method from the labs you did in school? You know the “best information, rinse and repeat until proven otherwise.” It starts with hypothesis and becomes a theory when testing out for a long period of time and eventually it either becomes law or not. Through the years our relationship with God is systematic not so much “religious.”
3. Evangelical Theology
Finally we go Evangelical on you. You relate to friends and neighbors, you have a message to deliver not only by your mouth and writings, but moreover the way you live your life. Evidence starts climbing by character building, being correctable, challenge-able and compelled tyo change.
If you are reading this- thanks. If you have any questions or comments let me know.

Have you ever seen a good man gone bad?
Meets the Son of Man and goes away sad.
Cause he couldn’t give up on all the things he had
to get a set of keys!
Have you ever seen a woman lose her faith?
It sticks in her head, goes past the heart
and to her waist, well that’s a tragic story
but just you wait, the human tragedy.
It’s so hard for a rich man
and a wealthy woman,
so hard for a layman to understand.
So hard for a city boy
and hard for a sophisticate
to reach a place that they might undertand
the keys to the Kingdom.
Have you ever seen a child at play
the imagination beckons and they mold a lump of clay
they save a place for you and by the end of the day
you are engaged.
Have you ever seen a couple when they pray?
they get past the laundry list and and mean just what they say.
they bring it to the throne of God and are thankful for the give and take
and then we turn the page!
We are cautious and unamused
we are listless, lost and confused
and all we need to be is open and used
by God’s right hand!
We are angry about to blow a fuse
We are stoic and broken up in twos
We can’t walk a mile in their shoes
We are islands until we understand
to follow His plan. And He has a plan for us.
Have you ever seen a politician wash his hands-
to the kind of truth that was standing right in front of him.
The kind of truth that follows the leader of the band,
He who holds the keys, calling out to all, to you and to me,
He who holds the keys to the Kingdom.
The blues ain’t nothing but a good man, feeling bad.
