I’ve been reading several debates on this forum where the debators have very different view’s of Paul’s theology.
So here is my question:
*]How systematic was Paul’s theology? He often uses words in ambigioius ways. For example Justification, Salvation, Reconciliation, Expiation, Redemption, Freedom, Transformation, New Creation, Glorification etc…
*]Could it be argued that some of Paul’s points are open ended, or not clearly defined, and that this done on purpose by the Holy Spirit?
2 Peter 15 And consider the patience of our Lord as salvation, as our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given to him, also wrote to you, 16 speaking of these things 12 as he does in all his letters. In them there are some things hard to understand that the ignorant and unstable distort to their own destruction, just as they do the other scriptures. 17 Therefore, beloved, since you are forewarned, be on your guard not to be led into the error of the unprincipled and to fall from your own stability. z
