A Point on Discerning Bad Theology

Reading in In Praise of the Inexpressible: Paul’s Experience of the Divine Mystery by Jean Paillard, and I came across this quote which I think is eminently true. Thought I’d share it with you:
Any theology that does not result in singing God’s praise is simply bad theology. (p. 82)
Or to put it another way: Good theology leads to wonderful doxology. Is that not what we are really supposed to mean by the term orthodoxy?
