Bavinck on Terminology
“Under the guise of being scriptural, biblical theology has always strayed further away from Scripture, while ecclesiastical orthodoxy, with its extrabiblical terminology, has been consistently vindicated as scriptural.”
Reformed Dogmatics, Vol. 2, 297
I really appreciate this quote and the subsequent article in Clarion entitled “Fit to be bound.” There are Scriptural truths that have implications beyond what is explicitly stated in Scripture. I have often wondered how far to push the issue of extra scriptural binding. Your thoughts are much appreciated.
