Obedience

Doctrines are decrees or dictates issued by a leader or a small group of leaders, who have narrow political agendas. They are based on carefully constructed formulas or theories that serve those agendas. Those who issue them market them as truth, and thus that we should obey or believe them based on trust and faith, not reason or personal experience. But the central requirement isn’t trust or faith, rather obedience.
