We all need social groups and their social identities to establish us and fix us in the world we live in. But there is a problem when we find ourselves stuck in that identity – confusing the larger, universal truths with either our nation and its interests or our group’s mores or social preferences. It’s even worse when we limit our vision of the Truth to our particular way of viewing God’s nature or our group’s preferred ways of praying and worshipping.
