Theology 4 Every 1

   Sunday, 23 October 2016 17:23

Theology 4 Every 1 Theology for everyone? You might think that theology is only for priests, pastors, and fulltime workers. Theology is “Faith seeking understanding” said St Anslem. All Christians should be in a position to explain our beliefs and practices in a reasonable manner to anyone who needs a clarification on our faith. You might immediately think of apologetics; yes, that is one aspect of reasoning out our faith. But a mother needs to address the questions of her children regarding faith; sometimes we are taken aback by the questions of our kids. To answer a question of your colleague on your faith, you should be in a position to give reasonable answer. You might be interested in a video (less than minute): God is Dead? THEOn brings theological education to you that you could access with a touch of a finger on your laptop, pad, smart phone, etc. (Any Device); we understand that you do not have time to attend classes either in a seminary or in a church. You can login anytime of the day from anywhere in the world and listen to the video lectures, take quizzes, participate in the discussion, and do many other things…

We had sent out this survey link through email to various Christian professional all over India. We had 102 people who had responded to this survey. Of these 78% were males and 22% were females. About 55% of them were employed in IT firms; 17% in academic institutions and remaining 27% were speared across Human resources; Sales and Marketing; NGOs and Government services. 76% of them were actively or very actively involved in ministry.

The Genesis of THEOn

   Monday, 28 September 2015 06:03

I am delighted to be in touch with you through this first blog of THEOn.in. My wife and I felt during the past few years that the Lord has been speaking to us to step into unknown territory to venture a strategic mission in the present context; we were hesitant, though. We shared the God-given thoughts to some theological scholars, pastors, and Christian professionals; they too felt the need of such a venture. Together, we registered a non-profit Christian educational trust in Tamil Nadu, India with a name Marina Initiatives for Transformation on 24 December 2013 in response to the changing face of India and the world at large. The name Marina was chosen to indicate that this ministry is rooted in a specific context and will impact people from all walks of life as the Marina beach in Chennai attracts everyone. The vision of Marina Initiatives for Transformation is: Equipping and engaging influencers to make a positive contribution to the transformation of individuals and communities.
