This chapter argues in defence of traditional Christology against criticism that it is unethical, immoral, and unspiritual. It suggests that there may be some Christologists, like other researchers and scientists, who started out with abstract definitions and debates and then tried to work out a suitable devotional life on this basis. The chapter also explains that most Christologists began as Christian believers, worshipping and trusting and trying to obey the Son of God who loved them and gave Himself for them.
