Overall the systematics curriculum has not changed much since this paper was written in 1986. WLS accepts the Bible as the inherent word of God and this reflects itself in dogmatics classes as the entire fields of dogmatics is covered. The dogmatics courses are based on J.P. Meyer’s notes, which are in turn based on Hoenecke’s dogmatics. Though there are some who devalue study in dogmatics, it remains an important aspect of theological education. Dogmatics will always teach its students a proper distinction between law and gospel.
