“The theologian is dealing with a fixed and unchangeable fact, the Word of God which Christ gave His Church through His Apostles and Prophets.  God’s Word is constant, as the laws of nature are constants.  As little as we can change those laws, but accept them as they are, so little can we alter the Word of Christ; the Church and its teachers must receive it as it is.  It is the business of the scientist to ‘observe the data.’  and the  ‘datum’ which the theologian ’observes’ is the Word of Christ.  There are no other ‘data.’”  (F. Pieper, Christian Dogmatics, Vol I, 143)
