Is systematic theology the right approach to reading scripture ??
Hi proudpapa,I recommend you read this and I am sure you will have your answer.Christianity is NOT a Belief-systemhttp://www.christinyou.net/pages/Xnotbs.htmlBlessings,Pilgrim
pilgrim777, some good points
I belive Ccontextual reading is the right way.Study the context and what the text is talking about/history to the text etc.Systematic theology is good for preachers.I have studied systematic theology and I never regret it :-)
Personally, I think the best way to study scripture is by opening with prayer every time you begin. I think it's good to study with many different resources but only if it doesn't bind you into a routine, if you know what I mean.Admittedly, I don't know much about Systematic Theology though, so I would like to delve into it a bit.
