What does the logo mean?

The sword and the trowel are borrowed from Charles Haddon Spurgeon, a 19th century Baptist minister from England. He used the sword and the trowel as the title of a theological journal he published and referred to as “a record of combat with sin and labour for the Lord.” The Latin phrase “Soli Deo Gloria” is considered one of the “five ‘Solas’” of the protestant reformation. In English it means, “for the glory of God alone.”

The Thideology logo is a reminder to the Christian: Our two-fold purpose is to build God’s Kingdom by proclaiming the gospel and making disciples, and to defend the faith once for all delivered to the saints, and that this is all done for the sole purpose of bringing glory to God.
