*Abstract: The four essays discuss various topics namely dissent, the imago
Dei, homosexuality and the beginnings of charitable work in the
Philippines. Each has its own main problem. In the first essay entitled
"Healthy and Unhealthy Dissent in the Context of Catholic Education",
dissent is examined in response to a certain opinion which condemned and
excluded all forms of dissent in the context of Catholic education. The
second essay deals with the development of the Church’s teaching on the
homosexual act in the light of recent developments. The third essay is an
exegetical investigation of the meaning of the phrase imago Dei in Genesis
1:27, which has shaped Christian anthropology and has been invoked in
discussions on homosexuality. The fourth essay is a historical paper
that explores the beginnings of charitable work in the Philippines in Fray
Juan Clemente’s Hospital de Naturales founded in 1578 in response to
another opinion which made a blanket condemnation of the work of the
Spanish friars in the Philippines. In conclusion, theology is a ministry
which must always be exercised in the service of the Church in whatever
form. In the theologian’s various tasks of explaining, asking,
investigating, and clarifying among many others, the unifying element is a
desire and effort to help people arrive more closely at the truth and so
lead them more closely to the Truth.*
