I was the kid who always asked, “Why?”
“Why do we hang stockings at Christmas?” “Why do we eat turkey at Thanksgiving?” “Why does the Tooth Fairy leave coins for my lost teeth?” Why? Why? Why? Some answers helped me understand the history behind the mysterious actions, while others left me even more perplexed.
Becoming a Christian didn’t make me less inquisitive; if anything, it made me even more curious — and that’s a good thing. Rather than blindly following tradition or culture, God calls us to base everything we do on biblical principles and spiritual truth.
By asking ‘Why?’ I’ve uncovered ten things Christians like to do that aren’t biblical.
