STUDY . Dogma Vs. Doctrine . Introduction . By Fabian Massa.

Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.


Dogma :
In religion is a proposition that is based on firm and certain undeniable principle not tested for accuracy . Originally (from the Latin dogma , and this from the Greek δόγμα ) the term could mean a rule or decree issued by an authority, or a review of a philosophical school property .

Doctrine (Latin doctrine ) is a coherent set of teachings and instructions. They can be based on a belief system on a branch of knowledge, field of study or specific science .
Teaching involves the interaction of three elements: the teacher ( teacher or teacher ), the student ( pupil or student ), and the subject or object of which comes the reliable source of knowledge , in this case the Bible ( The writings of all Authors inspired by God and Divine Principles of conduct , history , models and promises contained in scripture ) .
Within the scope of the Church , it is necessary to differentiate between what is dogma ( rule proposed by the authorities as institutional policy , necessary to maintain order) Doctrine what it should be based on God's Word .

You need to be clear about the difference between dogma and doctrine. Many would agree that the congregations do not understand that is the one and the other. Thus passed its ordinances as holy , unquestionable and undeniable . They order anything and at the slightest hint of protest, wielding authority that there is " unclean Spirit Rebellion " . The blessing is in obedience ( and that this must be blind , deaf and dumb ) when obedience is to the Word of God and the things that they agree with the Bible.

Some ministers move the " Papal Infallibility " to apply to the pastor, being then the "Pastor 's Infallible " which obviously is not true.
Moreover, if we pay attention to the definition of education , we can see clearly the actors are three:

       I. Teachers , teachers , teachers or instructors

      II. Students or disciples

     III. The object of knowledge

This may seem a truism, but it is obvious that the one who teaches should know , have a comprehensive knowledge of the subject of education. Biblically we can see that the differences between dealing with teaching and disciples was huge , here are some examples:

a. The most notorious is that of Jesus and the disciples
b . In order to put something less extreme can also quote Paul with Timothy or Titus.

c . The author of Hebrews and his disciples ( who apparently were always stuck in the lessons of Hebrews 5, and failed to move to the Hebrews 6)

And so we can continue with the other men of God who still teach us through the Scriptures .

You need more teachers that we form , we can give instruction in integrated congregations . I live in Buenos Aires , capital of Argentina. Here in the last 20 years, education has been desmejorando quickly. Of the people who come to the Evangelical Church , 70% are functionally illiterate , ie read, write , have completed his primary and secondary completed part of , know how to use technology moderately . But read so poorly that they can not interpret the texts. To top it gives them a Bible KJV version 60 , on a 1603 year Spanish . If we add to this that most instructors ( group leaders ) are more or less in the same condition, we can understand the results : Congregations that after 25 years of church have not even read the whole Bible , nor do they understand .

No doubt we need more teachers in addition to being filled with the Holy Spirit are well educated and trained , to take out of the church all unscriptural teachings , dogmas born of misinterpretation , unscriptural traditions , etc. ...

Week 70 is about to begin and the vast majority of God's people are not understanding the basics. You need to train teachers to make disciples.
