Just because it's tradition is no reason to assume that something is right or wrong, but you need to make sure. You should examine your faith and make sure that it stands up objectively. Use both your heart and mind, so that you can bring your intelligence and logic to the table.
Imagine for a moment that you were born a ________. (Insert a cult that you feel is horribly wrong in the blank). If you never did any research and followed your belief blindly, how would you know any different? Don't ever be afraid to question your beliefs, the truth will thrive and survive in any amount of light you shine on it.
I would like to be warm, fuzzy and wonderfully inclusive here, telling you that any god you believe in will work. That we are all headed for the same destination, just taking different paths. That we all have our own version of truth.
Unfortunately, that would be a warm, fuzzy and wonderfully inclusive lie. Truth is by definition, reality. What is, is. God will not magically morph to suit your interpretation of Him once you die. You will either be right or wrong, and it is up to you to make the most informed choice possible.
So... based on your parent's guidance, where do you currently stand on this question?
