The Problem of Doctrinal Decidability: Methods for Evaluating Purorted Divine Revelations
by Wellington, R. A., M.A., Oklahoma State University, 2017, 108; 10272232
Abstract (Summary)

The plethora of contrary doctrines pertaining to salvation, among the variety of religions in the world today, creates a problem for the sincere investigator who seeks to find out if there is such a thing as salvation and, if there is, how to be saved. These contrary doctrines are problematic to the degree that the sincere investigator is unable to evaluate the probability of some of these doctrines over others. In order to aid the sincere investigator with this problem, I explore methods for evaluating doctrines that purport to affect one’s salvation.
