In a society largely devoid of orthodox theology, Christians should continue to sing the great hymns to better understand the important foundational stones upon which their faith rests, Joni Eareckson Tada says. 

“I don’t know that many lay Christians study orthodox theology,” Tada, founder and CEO of Joni and Friends, told The Christian Post. “We do Bible studies and become involved with Bible study fellowship, but there isn’t an urge among most lay Christians to study systematic theology, the great doctrines of the faith, the doctrine of Hell and Heaven, grace, sin, salvation.”

“These are all important foundational stones upon which our faith rests. So few people actually delve into those deep waters. But when we sing great hymns of the faith, we are learning great doctrine and we don't even know it.”
