Welcome to Theology Circus, where we strive to help you understand the Bible through sound interpretation principles that go back to the first school of Bible interpretation in Antioch, Syria in 200 A.D. These Hermeneutical principles are the same rules of interpretation followed by Luther, Calvin and other reformers of days past as well as contemporary trusted teachers and theologians such as MacArthur, Utley, Arthur and others. Our goal is to help you to become self feeding in a manner that protects doctrine, builds God’s kingdom and protects you from the many wolves that are fleecing the flock for profit and personal gain. If you see it on television, it’s probably false teaching.
Theology Circus is an independently funded consortium of theologians who walk in an upright manner in keeping with Matthew 10:8-10: “Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons. You received without paying; give without pay.
Acquire no gold or silver or copper for your belts, no bag for your journey, or two tunics or sandals or a staff, for the laborer deserves his food.” -ESV We do not solicit donations or sell any products. Everything we have is from God and we freely give to all who are in need. It is out of genuine heartfelt concern that the church today needs sound doctrine based on an accurate and trustworthy interpretation based solely upon discovering what the original Biblical authors were saying to their original audience and how they applied it in their day, their culture and in their understanding. The Bible was written FOR us but it was written TO first century Jewish converts. We cannot read the Bible like the morning news and interpret it based on a modern, western literal mindset when it is ancient, eastern philosophy written to a people of a somewhat limited and mystical worldview that has little or nothing in common with what’s coming out of many pulpits and televisions today. This is in part why we remain anonymous. Storming the gates of Hell means a hit to the pocketbook of many popular preachers and teachers who use the gospel message as a means for self promotion and profit. If our identities were disclosed it would open us up to danger from those who would seek to protect their ill gotten gains and livelihoods based on lies, deceit and a proliferation of half truths found by proof texting and cherry picking the scriptures. A bedrock guiding principle of Hermeneutics is that a book that can mean anything, means nothing.
We are grateful you found us and hope we can help you along on your personal journey towards Christ-likeness. It is our solemn prayer that you will one day stand before God and receive your victor’s crown of glory.
