Study Questions on Dogma, Doctrine and Catholic Obligations

Name two characteristics of dogma. 1. Every statement of dogma is limited by the concerns which motivated its expression. 2. Every statement of dogma is also limited by the context of human knowledge at the time when the dogma was framed.
What is the difference between doctrine and dogma? Dogma is truth which we believe has been specifically revealed by God. Doctrine reflects only our best understanding of that which has been revealed. Doctrine refers to any belief or teaching which has the official approval of the Magisterium.
Explain how the Church's understanding of dogma can and does change. People in different time periods have different conceptions and different ways of perceiving and responding to the world. As these change, the way we express and respond to dogmas will change. Example: The Church's response to Galileo.
What obligations do Catholics have with respect to the teachings of the Magisterium? Each time the Magisterium declares that a particular statement or concept is part of the deposit of faith, Catholics are obliged to accept their assertion is true. Every dogmatic statement protects as essential truth which is in danger of being lost.
