This is my cultural heritage, as well. And I have come to take great delight in smacking my "doctrinally enslaved" relatives upside the head with Scripture. Such as:

JESUS said: "the whole of the Law shall be this: Love the Lord with all thy heart, all the mind, and all thy strength, and love thy neighbor as thyself." That's all the law Christ left us with, because that's what he said: the whole of the law. I know I'm not qualified to add or take away anything from it. What makes you think you are? ( Or your pastor? or your church? or the entire collected group of theologians since the founding of the church?)
