Culture or Scripture?

I was walking across campus today when a thought caused me to question a doctrine I've held for a long time. I got to wondering if I had learned this doctrine from "church", or from the Scriptures.

And I realized that we often hold to doctrines because we've sung these doctrines in our church songs since we were two years old, not because the doctrines are actually taught in the Bible.

Just another good reason to question everything, even dearly-held doctrines.

I have the same problem. I am trying to figure out what is truly from the Bible and what is just tradition handed down from one generation to the next. Coming from an ultra-conservative background, I am questioning which "rules" are Biblical and which are burdens hard to bear given by Pharisee type thinkers.
