The scientific record is an important one. Dogmatic Theology answers objections from philosophy and other sciences. When the church puts forth Dogmatic Theology it proves its doctrines of the Church from Scripture and tradition, illustrates them by suitable comparisons, and shows that they are in harmony with reason. Faith and Reason in understanding God’s revelation of revealed truth in the Holy Scripture was propounded in the Constitution Dei Filius of Vatican Council I.

Modern forms of rationalism have typically held that at the core of the mythological ideas taught in Christian revelation (creation, incarnation, redemption and the like) there lie the basic natural truths of religion and morality accessible to human reason and sufficient to guide persons in their relations with God and with each other.

But the knowledge of the economy of salvation — the divine invitation to loving unity and the divine action that enables it — comes only in God’s disclosure of His purposes in the revelation proclaimed by Christ and entrusted to the Apostles and the Church.
