Theology and the Christian Walk

Lots of Theological Topics and Articles on the Christian Life

Today, many Christians are turning back to the puritans to, “walk in the old paths,” of God’s word, and to continue to proclaim old truth that glorifies Jesus Christ. There is no new theology. In our electronic age, more and more people are looking to add electronic books (ePubs, mobi and PDF formats) to their library – books from the Reformers and Puritans – in order to become a “digital puritan” themselves. Take a moment to visit Puritan Publications (click the banner below) to find the biggest selection of rare puritan works updated in modern English in both print form and in multiple electronic forms. There are new books published every month. All proceeds go to support A Puritan’s Mind.

Practical Theology for the Christian Walk

Links to articles are below or to the right.

Are you a Christian? Does your daily walk reflect what is means to be a Christian? Have you been arrested completely by Jesus Christ and his Gospel, and do you have a true and sincere love for the Lord Jesus Christ? A Christian is one who follows the teaching and way of Jesus Christ. This echoes being a follower of “The Way” as depicted in the book of Acts. “But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets.” (Acts 24:14). It is a disciple. “And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple,” (Luke 14:27). A person must exemplify in his or her life the teachings of Jesus Christ. “And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?” (Luke 6:46). Such Christians are members of the ekklasia, the church, or the ones who are called out from among the world to serve the Living Christ. “…ye serve the Lord Christ,” (Col. 3:24).

The Christian’s spiritual walk is varied in every way from elect servant to elect servant. But all elect servants of Christ are being made into the likeness of Christ through sanctification. This is practical theology. As a matter of fact, every Christian is required to have a solid “theology of walking.” We are to walk in the ways of God’s word, “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them,” (Eph. 2:10). We are to walk worthily, “I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,” (Eph. 4:1). We are to walk in love, “And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour,” (Eph. 5:2). We are to walk as children of light, “walk as children of light,” (Eph. 5:8). We are to walk wisely, “See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil,” (Eph. 5:15-16). You can do your own in depth study of Scripture concerning what it means to have a solid theology of walking (cf. Rom. 4:12Rom. 6:4Rom. 8:14Rom. 13:131 Cor. 3:31 Cor. 7:172 Cor. 5:72 Cor. 6:162 Cor. 10:3Gal. 5:1625Gal. 6:16Eph. 2:10Eph. 4:117Eph. 5:2815Phil. 3:16-18Col. 1:10Col. 2:6Col. 4:51 Thess. 2:121 Thess. 4:1122 Thess. 3:112 Pet. 2:101 John 1:6-71 John 2:62 John 1:63 John 1:4Jude 1:18Rev. 3:4Rev. 9:20Rev. 16:15Rev. 21:24).

In this section of A Puritan’s Mind you will find a wide range of articles that can help Christians along the holy walk of becoming more like Christ, less like the world, and to coin a phrase from our millennium, become radical Christians.

The Christian walk is one of the most important topics in practical theology. That is why this section of the site is dedicated to miscellaneous articles covering that topic. The links should help the Christian with various foundational thoughts as well as many helpful insights which simply promote a more thorough Christian walk with Jesus Christ. In Pilgrim’s Progress, John Bunyan’s fantastic work on the Christian journey, the main character Christian talked with Discretion, Prudence, Piety and Charity to further bolster his preparation for the long road ahead. You should do this as well!
