This paper stress that solutions of creed and improved doctrines towards some problems being the most important thing in the tradition of theological thinking are not absolute and undebatable, but it is going to be more appropriate that they are considered human efforts, or manners of approach, Because, the classical theology is an human science that rise and developed under partical historical and cultural realities, but not a sacred and dogmatic one. In the Mediaval world of Islam, science of theology was able to meet expectations, demands, and needs in that era. And today, in order to reform a discipline of theology being based on Islam as parallel to theological developments, it is necessary to gain courage to bring to account products of opinion and solutions of creed in sphere of theology. Because, it had reached an inevitable situation to closely examine products which are put forward in tradition of theological thinking by using method of historical and linguistical critisism. İt is must be essential to reconstruct imagination of relation of God to universe, and meanwhile, in particular, relation of God to man in direction of changed conditions and developed needs in the light of main message and principles of the Holy Qur'ân. Because, progress, improvement, and change is inevitable in historical and social facts.
