Modest Dogmatician

“The task of dogmatics is precisely to rationally reproduce the content of revelation that relates to the knowledge of God. Naturally, in this reproduction of the content of revelation, a danger exists on many levels of making mistakes and falling into error. This fact should predispose the dogmatician, like every practitioner of science, to modesty” (Herman Bavinck, Reformed Dogmatics, Vol. 1, 45).
