Cultural Beliefs to Unlearn
Belief is where ideas go to die, so they can live forever. At least that is what we hope will happen.
Yesterday, I watched a video of Pastor Greg Locke on Facebook. I’m no longer a believer in the Christian canon but I remain open to perspectives. As I listened, I remembered how crucial it was that I always be “right”. Not just as a Christian, but as a person. “You must be right” is not a religious belief, it’s a cultural myth, because the groups in our culture that espouse “rightness” transcend religion. For example, here is a short list of all the groups who are “right” about what they claim, think and do:
And the list goes on and on.
I’ve come to realize that having an open mind does not mean I have to change my mind. I’ve also come to realize that I actually can choose and I’m not beholden to blindly obey “Mother Culture”.
Belief is not necessary and I can question as many as I choose.
