I have been listening to lectures at the suggestion of Jnorm on the issues of Dogma and the Eastern Rejection of Rational Argument.

Here are Clark Carlton’s lectures on Orthodoxy and Dogma

Orthodoxy presents itself as a way of life rather than a rationally coherent system of belief. This alarms me seeing that this is Mormonism’s Ace of Spades, so to speak. Their friendly atmosphere and familiy Oriented lifestyle has plunged millions on their way to hell.¬†Catholic answers has an article on it here:
