New theology

Pope Francis on the Feast of Pentecost:

"The Holy Spirit teaches us: He is our interior Master. He guides us along the right path through life's situations. He teaches us the path, the street .... He is more than just a teacher of doctrine. The Spirit is a teacher of life. Certainly  knowledge, understanding is also a part of life but within the broader and more harmonious horizon of Christian existence."  

The drive-by shooting at "doctrine" is one thing.  Another is the claimed opposition between "Christian existence," on the one hand, and "knowledge, understanding" ("also [sic] a part of life"), on the other.
