I more or less quote, 'Wright is somewhat biblicistic... that is to say he holds on to a text without regard for context and the history of Protestant tradition and theology... He’ll have to be answered at some level in terms of the Bible itself.'
The context is a discussion on Wright's view on imputation. He accuses Wright of ignoring context and where this is so Wright is indeed culpable. He then defines 'biblicistic' as a disregard for the history of Protestant thought and theology. A much lesser charge in my view. What if Wright has considered it and rejected it? Certainly Protestant thought is not uniform on the issue of imputation. Seifrid then concedes that Wright and others (here I include myself) will not be satisfied with the logic of systematics or the dogmas of confessions. Seifrid says, 'He’ll have to be answered at some level in terms of the Bible itself. '
Exactly. No posturing or pontificating or huffing and puffing is a substitute for Scripture. If imputation is such a critical issue and so integral to the gospel let it be shown to be taught in Scripture. If it is biblicist to insist a belief is clearly biblically based then I am biblicist.
