We all live lives molded by traditions of all sorts. But, when the dogmas are presented in such a way that they stifle questioning or thinking,or if traditions-ritual,devotional,or customary; Byzantine, latin, or Reformed are merely archaic vestiges with no sound reason for untenable persistence(possibly "rendering null and void the word of God ").

Then these rightly come under the searching gaze of the faithful skeptic.

 If there is any reason in a given dogma or tradition it can be searched out and known and no harm will ever come to the truth,in the process. With determination to accomplish The highest welfare for all sentient beings,who excel even the wish-granting gem, May I at all times hold them dear.(Ecclesiastes)

And I gave my heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning all things that are done under heaven:this sore travail hath God given to the sons of man to be exercised therewith. These strengths and capacities can be intentionally activated and lead to becoming happier. Rather than have psychology concentrate on human pathologies, limitations, and suffering the positive resources of humankind. They wish to challenge the powerful influence of happiness pessimists in their different incarnations. Happiness pessimists,whether secular or religious,doubt that human beings have the capacities to generate personal changes in order to become happy.
