The•ol•o•gy Pro•per: Theology comes from two Greek words, theos, meaning God, and logos, meaning word. If all theology is thus “words about God,” what is Theology Proper? It is the term that theologians use to refer to the doctrine of God—who He is and what He is like. It is primarily concerned with God’s attributes—those truths about God that show to us just how different He is from any of His creatures. While every area of theology has something to teach us about God, this one focuses on who God is in and of Himself, independent of the world that He chose to create and the many mighty works He has done and has promised to do in that world.
