Addenda for Saltmeister:

"Enter ye in at the narrow gate [dogma]: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat [the doctrines of men]. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it!"
Matthew 7:13-14

Addenda for Thomas:

"Enter ye in at the narrow gate [pure doctrine]: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat [dogmas of men]. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it!"

Hi Bruce —

I'm working to the etymology of doctrine being a teaching, but a dogma being an embodied teaching ... so a doctrine is substance but no essence, whereas a dogma is substance and essence.

As essence is higher than substance, I would say dogma is the narrow gate.
