Dogma and why we need it...

"Dogma is not a dirty word. It is a light and a guide given by God through the Church founded by Christ. Without dogma the Christian faith would have eroded into mere sentiment and vague emotionalism centuries ago." -
Dorothy Sayers

TOO many REALLY need to understand this. I'll be reading this book and pray that others from all different faith communities will, too. Too many I know think "dogma" IS a dirty word, so with just their bibles and a 'faith-filled' independent 'church' believe they're now unshackled and free [from dogma/ritual] and know how to worship the way the early Church did. I don't mean any disrespect, but please, PLEASE don't lose your GOD-GIVEN REASON for emotionalism. The trade could be deadly.
