What is dogma?

  • a principle or set of principles laid down by an authority as incontrovertibly true. "the Christian dogma of the Trinity"

How does dogma go along with the Church?

  • From the chapter 4 power point, dogma forms the framework for Christian worldview.
  • It shapes our understanding of good and bad.
  • It also helps us determine what we should try to cchange and leave behind.

How does the catholic dogma affect society?

  • in our relationship with God we experience the conversion of heart that is necessary to truly love one another as God has loved us. Catholic social teaching emerges from the truth of what God has revealed to us about himself.

Closing; what is dogma to me?

  • Dogma to me is the understanding of the things God only knows of. So basically, it's the revealing of secrets that only God knows of. He is trusting us enough to allow us to know these things.


  • and once we accept these things into our lives and understand them, we can have a better relationship with God.
