Thanks for reading!

This is where I think both/and thinking should be employed. I think our beliefs are on a spectrum AND that that spectrum is impacted by social identity groups. For example, Christianity is a social identity. Not all Christians believe the same things or interpret scripture in exactly the same way. Nevertheless, most Christians share common value sets. Most Christians worship in a building (pre-Covid) one or more times a week. Most Christians believe Jesus is of divine origin and died for human sins. See where I’m going with this?
