Zero-based budgeting

Am Anfang seiner 1000-seitigen Ethik schreibt John Frame:

Given sola Scriptura … it is then necessary to go back to Scripture to establish the truth of what those sources say.

Dieses Zurückgehen auf die Schrift nennt er “zero-based budgeting”.

Zero-based budgeting in theology is a good thing, a necessary consequence of sola Scriptura.

Daraus leitet er sein Ziel ab:

So in this book I will be drawing some fine distinctions, as theologians are wont to do. I do this not to gain a reputation for subtlety and nuance, but simply to follow Scripture.
