Everyone is a Theologian: A hearty Amen to Steve Timmis

Recently a clashed views with Steve Timmis's blog on "parachurch" at Resurgence, today I just want to say a loud Amen to his post on theology:
"...if evangelical theology is the truth about God in Christ, then all Christians are theologians in every sense that matters...[doctrines are to be] faced up to by a group of saved sinners as they cry out to the Holy Spirit to open blind eyes. Calvin was right in a number of things, not least when he said, “Doctrine is an affair, not of the tongue, but of life.”"
