Of course, the wisdom of the past and present has its place and is important for many. But we have to remember also that our faith has to be our own, our relationship with God is our own and it must be personal. Many belief systems, such as Catholicism, are a good starting point from which to build our faith. But in order to be the witnesses that God called us to be we have to know why we believe what do. The best way to show the importance of anything is by personal testimony. It's not just a matter of knowing beliefs; you have to know why you believe them.
