The Doctrines of God's Church
Systematic Theology addresses fundamental questions about the nature of reality and revelation and tries to develop a consistent and coherent view of what the Creation and the Bible say about God's world and His work in it.
It addresses several loci, or areas of knowledge: God, Creation, Humankind, Sin, Christ, Salvation, the Church, Angels & Demons, End Times, etc.
It utilizes critical thinking and logic to systematize our thoughts and clarify the Christian message.
It interfaces with several other domains of human knowledge, like natural science, philosophy, psychology, history, literature, etc.
Church doctrines emerge from theological reflection on the biblical text, guiding us in our daily life of faith.
Typical questions that Systematic Theology asks are: “How can Jesus be both fully God and fully man at the same time?” or “How is God three persons in one substance?”
