Scripture and Theology

Geoff ChapmanGreat Quotes0 Comments

“[A]s God’s Word, Sacred Scripture is a source free of error, valid for all times and places, and most important of all, inexhaustible. The theologian can never readily fashion it into a system. Time and again it springs new surprises, problems, and solutions which the theologian did not previously suspect were in the texts. More like an ocean than a spring, it gets deeper the further out a scholar goes. Therefore Sacred Scripture is not just a mine of arguments for theologians , or an instrument panel for orthodoxy, but rather is the foundation and the taproot of its power.”

Hans Kung, Justification
