Sayers: Theology unto Morality

Dorothy Sayers on strawberry-rhubarb theology (i.e. recognizing the importance of both getting the [theological] recipe right as well as enjoying, not just analyzing, what comes out of the [theological] oven):

It is worse than useless for Christian to talk about the importance of Christian morality, unless they are prepared to take their stand upon the fundamentals of Christian theology. It is a lie to say that dogma does not matter: it matters enormously.

--"Creed or Chaos?" in Christian Letters to a Post-Christian World, p. 31
