“It’s not about what you know, it’s about love. Theology/knowledge doesn’t matter, we are to love others.”
I agree that love is important – the greatest commandment is to love God and others. But without knowledge of how to love and Who we love, how can a relationship grow? If you love someone, you want to know more about them. What they like, don’t like, etc. You cannot love someone properly or fully without knowing them.
Knowledge of God develops through studying His Word and learning what He has to say to us. Theology is the study of God. Without knowing God, we cannot truly love Him. Yet without loving Him, we won’t have the desire to know more about Him. Theology is dry and boring without being accompanied by love. Love of God gives us the desire to know Him more and study Who He is and what He has to say.
Theology, studying about God for the sake of knowledge alone is not enough. Our motivation should be out of love and wanting to know Him more. But without knowledge, our love cannot grow and a relationship cannot develop and grow deeper.
