Rod Decker asked if theology affects doing church. Specifically he asked: “Does a person’s theology affect the way they do church? I.e., the way they conduct a church/worship service?”
I can say that for me personally it does affect the way I do church since my Trinitarian theology makes me more conscious about reverencing all three persons: Father, Son, and Spirit during worship rather than just any one of them. E.g., I’ve been to a Baptist church where I only heard the name Jesus mentioned. I’ve been to a number of Pentecostal and Charismatic churches where the Holy Spirit takes pride of place. Interestingly enough, I’ve not been in a Christian church where the Father is front and center, although I’d imagine that this is the case in some Unitarian churches (which I’ve never attended). In any event, if I find myself slacking during worship I try to self-correct as soon as possible, sometimes to my detriment. What I mean is that sometimes I’ll be so in my head about it that I end up missing the manner in which God is moving. This is rare but it does happen.
