Second Thesis on Theological Method

(I’m aiming for 95)

Doctrine is rephrasing the truths of the Bible to express them to different situations and cultures. It creates something new only in so far as it creates new ways of expressing old truths in response to the questions raised by new situations. This may include new language to describe synthetic concepts deduced from the scriptures (ie trinity), but this is still description, not invention.
