Dogmatics, For the Lord’s Sake

“It is part of the calling of the ἐκκλησία to learn to know the love of Christ that surpasses all knowledge and also to make known . . .  “the manifold wisdom of God” in order that the final end of theology, as of all things, may be that the name of the Lord is glorified. Theology and dogmatics, too, exist for the Lord’s sake” (Herman Bavinck, Reformed Dogmatics, Vol. 1, 46).
