The article presents the polemical explanations of French modernist priest Alfred Loisy and Anglican convert John Henry Cardinal Newman regarding the development of Christian doctrine in modern times. Both claim that Christian doctrine such as teaching, liturgy, practice, and traditions of the Catholic Church has conformed to the varying lands, people, and eras. Such development gives strength to the Church and better presents truth to different cultures and eras.
