Jurisprudence and the Problem of Church Doctrine

Abstract:     
Within Mormonism, the concept of church doctrine is frequently invoked in theological discussions. What is meant by this term, however, is not entirely clear. This essay argues that the question what is church doctrine? can be usefully analogized to the question what is the law? It then uses the contemporary philosophy of law to analyze the concept of church doctrine within Mormonism
