(b) Holding that a theology, once refined and adopted, carries some kind of authority. (c) Imagining that logical deductions, made from theological ideas, must be equally true. (d) Defining biblical words from theology, then transporting those definitions back into the Bible, imagining that the Bible thereby teaches one's theology. (e) Judging others' theologies by their degree of agreement with one's own theology. (f) Making theological propositions a test of orthodoxy or of fellowship. (g) Exalting knowledge of theology over obedience to Scripture. (Sigh.)
