Systematic Theology: Done!

I just got back from my Systematic Theology A with John Stackhouse final. I think it went fairly well, not great, but I am satisfied, probably a B exam. I can live with that. I am officially done in Canada (not with the degree mind you, just with taking classes up here).

The exam consisted of picking three of five propositions and writting an essay response to each one over three hours. Here are the directions:

Respond to the following propositions in the following way:

1. Rephrase them to make sure you understand them.

2. Indicate what about them you can affirm; what is at least partly accurate, well phrased, comprehensive, significant, and helpful.

3. Indicate what about them you cannot affirm; what is at least partly inaccurate, badly phrased, truncated, trivial, and unhelpful.

4. Conclude briefly with your overall evaluation.

And here are the three that I choose to write on:

Theology is a waste of time. We need to be out there, helping people.

If God can do anything, then can he create a rock so big he can’t lift it? Can he do evil?

Time and space began with the Big Bang. As Creator, God therefore transcends time and space.

You have three hours beginning… now!

    Wow … those are tough ones. Hope you did well! I have not done Systematic Theology myself, so far I seem to emphasise more on Biblical Studies. I hope to take it up real soon but I don’t see the module being offered. I am taking this course called the TEE Programme (Theological Education by Extension) for working people - an opportunity for us to do theology part time. I think I can only manage 2 modules this year: Romans and Acts.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
