I think you are correct.

It has been my experience that Christians are born into a Christian family and it is the accepted norm. It's a go-with-the-flow belief system-- whatever my parents/family/community has taught me is socially/religiously acceptable for me must be true. It requires no investigation or questioning of what is right or wrong.

I was born into this type of family and the more I was exposed to the world (mainly in college), the more I began to question my blind obedience to my instilled values and beliefs. I was certainly taught "love on another..", but it was not practiced, because I didn't give it two thoughts.
