"You have to be strong enough to say if the culture doesn't work, don't buy it." What an amazing thought, just think about it. Say you culture believes some crazy belief. Of course, everybody knows that most Asian cultures eat a lot of rice, that family is very important, and that any large parade is going to have at least one dragon, but for the real crazy one you have to actually live there for a while to know find out or if your real curious just Google them, ; )
-If you sleep in a room with a fan on and the windows closed: You will die.
- practice of Dowry (that just one)
- Muslim woman covering all
- Only one child allowed
-Foot Binding
- Sky Burial
-Sharo also known as flogging
This is just a small list. What doesn't make any sense to me is why would you stand for something you don't even understand. Even after research it doesn't make sense. Or what if your culture tells you to hurt yourself for the good of the tribe, village, family or community. Growing up to believe that is all OK is the worst part. The longer i stay any where the more is made know of Crazy beliefs that make no sense, to me..
Please pray for the The cultures of this world that are doing nothing but hurting our brothers and sisters.
Peace & Love

  1. This was good. This is something that God has been challenging me, using DeWayne. Many times I don't know why, it's just the norm. It is hard to get to the question "why" we do what we do ...at least for me. Perhaps with other cultures fear blocks the questions. And when my worldview gets shaken, it is still difficult to change, even if you know you need to. I do pray for all the cultures of the world, because they are all messed up in their own way. I pray for the Lord to bring an awareness, using HIS people to challenge the nations, and to bring freedom to walk in Biblical Truth. Thanks for challenging.
