I think a healthy approach to theology is of the utmost importance. I think this quote by Thomas Oden pretty much hits the nail on the head.
Because of piety’s penchant for taking itself too seriously, theology does well to nurture a modest, unguarded sense of comedy. Some droll sensibilities required to keep in due proportion the pompous pretensions of the study of divinity.I invite the kind of laughter that wells up not from cynicism about reflecting on God buyt from the ironic contradictions accompanying such reflection. Theology is intrinsically funny. This comes from glimpsing the incongruity of humans thinking about God. I have often laughed at myself as these sentences went through their torturous stages of formation. I invite you to look for the comic dimension of divinity that stalks every page. It is not blasphamy to grasp the human contradiction for what it is. The most enjoyable of all subjects has to be God, because God is the source of all joy.
