What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun. (Ecc. 1:9)
Jackie says: “If this is true then why do we study church history? I agree with Daniel Delgado at Western Seminary who offers these five reasons for studying church history:
1. Faithfulness – to stay faithful to the truth we must understand the attacks to the truth in the past.
2. Perspective – It is difficult to understand where we are now if we don’t look at how we got here.
3. Balance – Studying church history reveals how far the pendulum of doctrine can and does swing.
4. Humility – Studying church history can keep us from being prideful about our own brand of theology.
5. Hope – Church history keeps hope alive by reminding us of where the church has been and that it still has a mission to preach the gospel.”
