Beating the Systems

A Plea for Humility in Exegesis

J.M. Diener

Abstract: The greatest divisive force in Christianity are the various theological systems that exist among her adherents. An examination of the fundamental features of all theological systems that cause these divisions, “Beating the Systems” challenges the reader to hold the Bible as the greatest authority, to take a new view of their personal system and to display a biblical attitude towards those whose systems differ from theirs.
