Both Are Vital

What does purity of dogma mean? What does integrity of love mean? Without answering such questions, it is hard to understand whether one is more or less important than the other. A dogma is a central proposition of some conceptual scheme. A central dogma of many religions is a proposition asserting the nature and existence of God. A dogma is a belief.   What is meant by the purity of a dogma or belief? The simplest answer would be that purity means truth. A true belief is then a pure belief and a false belief is an impure belief. Love, on the contrary is an emotion, and as such can be appropriate or inappropriate, rational or irrational. Integrity means something like honesty. I suggest that purity and integrity are both equally important. Ideally, in matters religious, one hopes to believe only true propositions, and honestly love the good.
