METHODOLOGY

Either a system of principles and procedures applied to a given study or discipline, or the underlying principles that govern a certain activity. Methodology is an essential part of the Christian religion, which not only teaches the faithful what they are to do to gain eternal life, but also tells them how and why they are to save their souls.
