Stand Alone Field of Inquiry

When doing theology, Christian theologians don’t need to appeal to subject areas that are outside the realm of dogmatics. Ours is a field of study that is not derived from other disciplines but an entirely separate, independent discipline with its own built in principles. Because of this, theologians have the freedom and the obligation to set forth Christian dogma in the clearest possible light without having to borrow from the propositions of other disciplines. We can immediately adopt the standpoint of faith because the basis of our dogmatics is the revelation of God, not the combined knowledge of man from across multiple disciplines.
