More Muller

June 16, 2010

No central dogmas, such as predestination, control or organize system. Instead, the structure of system arises out of the careful consideration of the obiectum theologiae. What is more, the issue of the formal character of the obiectum theologiae, the way in which it is to be considered, governs the way in which theological system can be developed following the prolegomena. Here, again, the Reformed orthodox model presses biblical norms, a Christ-centered view of Scripture, and an essentially soteriological view of the body of Christian doctrine. In addition, it draws system away from purely metaphysical interests.
