Will Studying Theology Kill My Faith?

Will studying Theology kill your faith?  

From: Credo Clip: Will theology kill my faith? | Parchment and Pen

It can, if the pursuit of facts and abstract knowledge replaces communion and obedience. But it can also strengthen faith.

It's a little like asking "Will knowing more about my wife, her history, her opinions, her concerns and values, hurt our love?  Silly question - you need both the relationship and the accurate knowledge of the loved one that feeds that relationship. To continue the marriage analogy, do not separate what God has joined together!
