Those Systematic Theologies

One common error for theological students is to sit day and night thumbing through those systematic theologies, wherein the gospel is reduced to a number of heads or articles, and to learn and absorb these without thinking about truth for himself. Such will never receive any new revelations of God’s will from His Word.
