Leithart on the Development of Doctrine

Does the church have a finished, changeless confession?  No.  Will it ever?  No.  Because the Head of the Church is a living Lord, and being alive means having the capacity to surprise (Jenson).  As the living Lord, Jesus speaks through and to His church according to her needs, and the world’s.

Does this mean that doctrine is a wax nose, a free-for-all?  No.  Because the living Lord who is Head of the Church is utterly faithful.  His Yes is Yes, His No No.
