Quote Post: “People don’t become Christians because it’s true”

"People don't become Christians because it's true, but because they have been brainwashed, indoctrinated, and groomed since childhood."

  1. The quote holds true in some cases, but it is not a general rule. Some people become Christians after they reach adulthood, just because they are looking for a supernatural path and the Christian doctrine seems the right choice for them. Humans have a necessity for mystical guidance, we feel comfortable thinking a superior power is helping us in every little step we do in life. This willingness to brainwash is not exclusive of Christianity, it works for every other religion.

    • Yes, I agree.

      As Marx says: ‘Religious suffering is, at one and the same time, the expression of real suffering and a protest against real suffering. Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people [bold added].

      The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is the demand for their real happiness. To call on them to give up their illusions about their condition is to call on them to give up a condition that requires illusions. The criticism of religion is, therefore, in embryo, the criticism of that vale of tears of which religion is the halo.’
