Re-Post: Reformed Scholasticism
March 30, 2011
‘Post-Reformation theology soon ended up in scholasticism again. This is unavoidable. It is also good. You cannot live and think only in terms of reform. You cannot continually be in change and dwell in peril. It leaves you dizzy, just like a merry-go-round. Reformation is good, but it is only a moment in the entirety of the tradition. You may not, therefore, only be reform-minded, but must also think in terms of church and catholicity. Then theology unavoidably branches out to scholasticism.’
– Arnold A. Van Ruler, Theologish Werk IV (1972)
*Of course Van Ruler was a Reformed and Reformational Christian.
