Example text

Quae hypothesis ita secundum se neque vera est neque falsa, ut tamen vera esse possit; et quidem eo probabilior est, quo plura problemata virtualiter solvit; eo autem magis ad certitudinem accedit quo magis omnis alia excluditur via ad eadem problemata vel aeque bene vel melius solvenda. Porro, quae hypothesi competunt, ea omnia per se oriuntur ubi attingitur illa intelligentia quam laudavit c. Vaticanum I (DB. 1796). tia verbum interius et exterius, seu expressio conceptualis et verbalis. ;Praetere~, qui intelligentiam assequitur non qualemcumque sed fructuosissimam, non unicum quoddam jta solvit problema ut sterilis et sine fructu ulteriori sit solutio, sed ita unum directe solvit ut eo ipso multa et alia virtualiter solvat.

Vult quod certo revelatum est, et ideo eas adhibet methodos technicas quae non ad probabilia vel probabiliora sed ad certa conducant: Vult quod ipsam rem divinam respkit, et ideo mentem Marci, Pauli, Joannis, alteriusve scriptoris ita scrutatur ut ibi non sistat sed ulterius ad clarum et certum de Deo rebusque divinis procedat. Haec ergo de fine. De mediis autem adhibendis ad finem assequendum et longior et difficilior esset dissertatio, cum in studiis hodiernis factus sit dogmaticus tam quam lapis offensionis.

Accordingly, when systematic theologians go to the scriptures to learn about the mystery that they want to understand, they have to keep their own task distinct from that of biblical theology. Unless they concentrate exclusively on their own goal, they will not successfully arrive at it. What they want from the scriptures is something that they w6iilCl not even have to look for if the church had already defined it. and the significance clearly expressed in the categories that earlier I called catholic.
