Theological Causes 

As Christian believers discuss how the scripture applies to the mission of God in the world, new ways of viewing the scripture's relation to the environment, culture, society, health, moral formation, and justice opens up. As faith-based organizations compassionately address social issues, they need the ability to reflect theologically.
