True Scholarship

True scholarship is not merely presenting multiple views as if they all deserve equal plausibility. True scholarship presupposes dogmatism. It is not interested with treason against the Lord so as to gain wider appeal. It begins with the wisdom of Almighty God in Holy Scripture, finding its preeminence and culmination in Jesus Christ. If one is a true scholar, he must cast down every satanic argument and lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of Jesus Christ. The absolute truth contained in the inerrant, infallible, Holy Scripture alone is the greatest and only weapon. True scholarship does not come to theological disciplines hoping to pander to every wind of doctrine. Quite the contrary, if one is a true scholar, he must first become wise in Christ, according to the truth, and then refute everything that opposes His Lord Jesus Christ. Neither is true scholarship zeal without knowledge as if the Holy Spirit works through ignorance and compromise. The modern presupposition that we are humble when we tolerate error and those who bring error is rooted in enmity with God. It has nothing to do with fellowship in Him, according to apostolic teaching in Scripture.
