When principles become rules

Steve Runge is wading into the Synoptic Problem and is wary of some of the claims made by those who have gone before him. Is it possible that principles are being used woodenly as rules? Runge thinks that it's important to maintain a distinction between the two, and here's hoping that, by linking to his post, I will remember to make it too.

He finishes with a great quote from Howard Hendricks:
Rules are many, principles are few, rules will change, principles never do.
