Doctrine and morals

Some Christians think the Christian scriptures and tradition more reliable on doctrine than on morals. But Christianity came to change our lives rather than to satisfy our curiosity. It is more a way of life rather than an intellectual creed. And given this, Christians would expect the Christian scriptures and tradition to be, if anything, more reliable on morals than on doctrine. And since the center of Christian life is love, Christians should expect the greatest reliability to be on those parts of morality most intimately connected with love.
