Daily Dose Of Emmet Fox

The first thing that we have to realize is a fact of fun-damental importance, because it means breaking away from all the ordinary prepossessions of orthodoxy. The plain fact is that Jesus taught no theology what-ever. His teaching is entirely spiritual or metaphysical. Historical Christianity, unfortunately, has largely con-cerned itself with theological and doctrinal questions which, strange to say, have no part whatever in the Gospel teaching. It will startle many good people to learn that all the doctrines and theologies of the churches are human inventions built up by their authors out of their own mentalities, and foisted upon the Bible from the outside; but such is the case. There is absolutely no system of theology of doctrine to be found in the Bible; it simply is not there. Worthy people who felt the need of some intellectual explanation of life, and also believed that the Bible was a revelation of God to man, drew the natural conclusion that the one must be with-in the other; and then, more or less unconsciously, pro-ceeded to manufacture the thing that they wished to find. They did not have the spiritual or metaphysical key. They were not upon what is called the Spiritual Basis, and consequently they sought a purely intellec-tual or three-dimensional explanation of life—and there can be no such explanation.
