The Use of the Scriptures in Theology : the Nathaniel William Taylor Lectures for 1905, Given Before the Divinity School of Yale University
by Clarke, William Newton

Overview -
This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1906 edition. Excerpt: ...In loyalty to the Christian view of God, wherein there is no bondage, there is opened to the student all honorable spiritual freedom, in which his highest powers have utmost scope and range, for the finding out of all high matters that can be known to men. Thus, doing justice to the Scriptures, to theology and to the theologian, our principle stands vindicated as worthy to govern the use of the Scriptures in theology. When our principle has won its rights, something will come of it. There will be negative results in the field of theology by way of elimination, and positive results by way of construction. These we shall consider in the hours that follow. Ill RESULTS NEGATIVE If we apply our principle, and use in theology only the Christian element from the Scriptures, the results will not all be directly constructive: they will be in part destructive, if we wish to call them so, though that is not the best name, as we shall see. Some familiar matters will be missed from-j: '-' theology when Christ has the field to himself. I cannot enumerate all the matters that will thus be eliminated, but I must devote this hour to suggestions as to the way in which these results, benefi-cent and not harmful, will be brought to pass. First may be mentioned two or three topics that stand by themselves, with their relation to theology determined in another manner. There are some cases in which the contribution of the Scriptures to theology is immediately withdrawn, as soon as we have discovered what the Scriptures in question really are, --withdrawn because it has become apparent that the writings that lie before us are not witnesses on the question. We used to suppose that the first chapters of Genesis were witnesses concerning the manner in which the world and...
