Belief without unhealthy limitations and restraints has many advantages.
1.Understanding-understanding what you believe and what others believe benefits everyone.
Many conflicts exist because no one wants to understand the other.
For I will give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to resist or contradict.Luke,21:15.

2.Righteousness-If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness is born of Him.1John,2:29
Whoever abides in Him does not sin.1John,3:6
3.Confidence-And now little children, abide in Him,that when He appears we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.1John,2:28
And by this we know that we are of the truth and shall assure our hearts before Him.
Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us,we have confidence toward God.1John,3:19-21
4.Sound mind-a healthy mind is the greatest gift of spiritual freedom.
