I Think The Holy Spirit Fits In There Somehwere
Holy Scripture is no dogmatics. It contains all the knowledge of God we need but not in the form of dogmatic formulations.... Scripture is a gold mine; it is the church that extracts the gold, puts its stamp on it, and converts it into general currency.That is so, right, though I would prefer the formulation, the Holy Spirit uses the church to extract...."
See, people who tend to be dogmatic, and I am among them, tend to overlook the role that the Holy Spirit plays in our lives. One of the important keys to overcoming our legalistic/dogmatic tendencies is to try and tap into the spiritual side of life, that is to say have a genuine encounter with the Holy Spirit.
