I find that people are afraid of questioning, afraid of those who question, and ultimately, afraid of the truth. No one wants to be excluded, or be the "radical" one. Following God in the pattern of Deut. 6 (sh'ma) requires following at all costs. That cost is greater for some than others. For some, they would rather retain the approval and good standing with their fellow traditionalists. We have price tags on our "truth". We don't want "that" truth. God is perfectly comfortable in contradicting our belief systems, and often times our understanding about Him and His governing dynamics. If we truly seek His truth, we will find the doors will be opened. We just have to be willing to open the flap, step outside the box and go "off the map".
