Object of study? Or object of worship?

One of the great dangers in theology is making our faith something we discuss rather than something that moves us. We lapse into this problem when we treat God as a mere object of our study rather than as the Lord we worship.—A Little Book for New Theologians, page 65

A timely warning. This is probably the biggest temptation for me. I love theology and biblical studies so much that there are times when it can become a god to me if I'm not careful, displacing the one true God.
