The problem of faith and criticism arises where there are rival systems of thought between which the individual has to choose. However, it is also necessary to recognize the force of criticisms and take them into account in the formulation of one's convictions. This applies equally to corporate bodies, with the rider that the two functions of safeguarding the faith and submitting it to criticism are often entrusted to groups of people who by temperament or training are suited to the one task or the other. This situation poses a problem for educators. There are some who would wish to keep religion out of moral education altogether, but whichever end one starts from, it is hard to see how this can be done. No religious education can be adequate which leaves the moral implications of religious faith unexplored, and if the education is to be predominantly Christian, this requires a study of Christian ethics.
