12. Its rarely the doctrine that is followed
Instead the beliefs of a particular group adhere to a social perception of what the doctrine is believed to be. Thus some believe that these actions will result in damnation while others believe that only blaspheming the holy ghost results in an unforgivable sin. In the end whichever particular belief is more palitable to the believers is what will propogate.
