Topic 2 DQ 2- are we prisoners of socialization


Categories: ,


Are we “prisoners” of socialization – yes or no? If you answer “yes,” how do you explain the fact that we think of ourselves as having choices and free will? If you say “no,” how do you explain the fact that in almost every way, we conform to what society expects of us? (We wear clothes, we drive on the right-hand side of the road, we go to college, we don’t – usually – go around stealing things, killing people, or breaking most of the laws of society.) After reading the GCU Statement on the Integration of Faith and Work document about Christian principles, GCU believes Christians are to seek His righteousness in relation to all aspects of human experience, including culture and society.
