In the body of Christ, things are always changing and evolving. It’s not because of new information but, new revelation. The things we heard from our parents and grandparents may not be sound biblical teaching. It’s not their fault because they taught us all they knew. That’s the great thing about the Word of God; it consistently gives birth to new revelation.

Examples
Old Thought: People believed we should pray to Jesus and Jesus will answer our prayers.
New Revelation: John 16:23 says, in that day you will no longer ask me (Jesus) anything. Very truly I tell you, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.
(Summary: We are to pray to God in Jesus’ name.)

Old Thought: Every time we sin, we have to ask to be forgiven by God.
New Revelation: Colossians 2:13-14 says when you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross.
(Summary: For the believer, ALL our sins are forgiven. Every past, present and future sins are forgiven and nailed to the cross. We live in a state of total forgiveness.)

It’s important to renew our mind with this new revelation. Instead of holding on to the past, we should open our minds and apply this new revelation in our lives.
