Theology and Repentance

I was almost going to skip reading the last page (page 806!) of Appendix I in John Frame’s The Doctrine of God. But then I would have missed this golden paragraph. He’s writing about the dangers of scholasticism, but it applies in many other areas as well.

Let us not suppose that some new theological system will arrive to banish scholasticism forever! I suspect that no particular theological method will provide a sure escape from the evils which we connect with scholasticism; developed by sinful man those evils are sins of the heart, and they can creep into any method, any kind of system, if the theologian is not on guard. The remedy for theological barrenness is not necessarily a new method, but always a prayer of repentance.
