Question #7

Given our doctrine of scripture, are we saying that Paul's theology when he died (that is, when it was most mature) was perfect? If not, how does this affect NT scholarship that tries to establish a "Pauline Theology" (meaning Paul's personal theology)? Can we assume that his personal theology as a whole was as perfect as that presented in his letters? For example, were all of his sermons without error? (We know Peter erred, at least in application.)
