What comes to mind when you consider the word theology? For many people, this word conjures up images of old men with long white beards pontificating on the minor details of God’s attributes. You might think of an “ivory tower” reserved for the select few who have the time and intellect to answers life’s most complex questions.
At its most basic meaning, however, theology simply refers to knowledge of God. As we form beliefs around basic truths revealed in Scripture, they guide our decisions and disposition every moment of the day. Perhaps one of the most practical and comforting biblical doctrines is that of assurance. Is it possible to know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we are saved?
And to help you draw clear conclusions, I recommend an excellent book called Absolutely Sure. With clarity, author Stephen J. Lawson describes the telltale signs of an authentic follower of Jesus according to Scripture.
