Challenge the Status Quo

     While there are many religions and beliefs in the world, it’s important that we always respect each other’s views, even if we disagree with them.  That doesn’t mean we have to accept their views, but we need to accept that each person’s free to follow God (or not follow God) in whatever way they choose.

     However, not all views are equal (as can be seen in this book).  Just as Jesus was willing to question the beliefs of his day, we too must be willing to speak up when something doesn’t feel right to us—to challenge the status quo.  It also means never being afraid to let others challenge our beliefs when the opportunity presents itself.

     As I hope this book demonstrates, it’s essential to our spiritual health and progress to question our experiences and beliefs in light of any new information that may come our way.  Otherwise, how can we grow?
