    This is excellent. I would add that in addition to correct doctrine, there’s an emphasis on correct behavior, which means “Don’t do anything we consider heinous sin– by which we mean those sins we ourselves aren’t likely to commit .”

    • Thank you for that. It’s true that it often isn’t entirely salvation by doctrine. It is usually salvation by doctrine and avoiding a certain list of behaviours, mostly around sex. As you say, other behaviours – including ones much more commonly condemned in Scripture like greed and judgementalism – are completely ok, though.
