Some people are bothered by the idea of systematic theology because they're afraid that this puts God in a box. But is this true? Today we'll talk about why the Bible commands us to have a certain method of theology, and how this protects, rather than limits, our understanding of who God is.
To do this, we'll look at the biblical method of theology, which Peter van Mastricht describes as the connection between theory and practice, or to say it another way, the theoretical-practical.
