On the one hand, it is good, proper, and necessary to preach about morality. On the other hand, without proper theological foundation, emphasis on morality easily becomes legalism. But to get right to the basic question, we do address both Christian morality (example from Dr. White) and Christian theology (of which you're already well aware).
