How did you acquire your faith? Was it by the instruction of family, community, and culture, or was it by encounter with me? Children are receptive to beliefs and adopt them readily. Adults are not as easily persuaded, but are still subject to the influence of those they associate with. Once established, beliefs tend to endure, so adults will continue in the faith they learned as a child unless they revisit the issue, and most do not. But isn’t the premise of your faith that you can have a direct relationship with me? In this manner, even if your faith was acquired by family and community it can be validated and sustained by encounter.
