There are a few ways to know something. I can watch a YouTube tutorial on how to play guitar. I will know how the guitar is played but I will not know how to make my fingers do what I know how to do.

Another way of knowing is to practice and teach my muscles to know how to play guitar. To combine knowledge and experience is to know something objectively and subjectively.

Ideology is to know about theology. To read another persons thoughts about God and think they are now my own because they sparked a chord within me. This is only the starting place. We must then teach our soul to know theology so that ideology can become a deep conviction.

And the journey of making ideology a conviction will refine both the conviction and ideology with experienced wrestling with God.
