Good answer sir.
Craig, your first paragraph nailed it! Children are usually indoctrinated into that system from birth and it's very difficult for facts and reason to make any difference in that person's mind. I know from experience.
Like RTB, I was also indoctrinated with Christian stuff. My family still practices that mind control to this day. What is it that makes some of us wake up and see the truth? and others never do?
Some of us REALLY wake up to see religion for the toxic inanity it is. Others KNOW this but prefer to remain in their delusional psychotic devotion to religion. Many people are religious addicts but refuse to acknowledge it!
People may be addicts under another imperfect humans opinion, which is not God's opinion. Reference Bible Isa 55:8 “For the thoughts of YOU people are not my thoughts, nor are my ways YOUR ways,” is the utterance of Jehovah. .
He sees the heart.
I did not grow up in the Church, nor did anyone around me believe. I did not come to religion through a crisis. I came to faith through relentless study. I'm not the only one. Many great thinkers set out to disprove God and decided they couldn't.
Freedom from religious organizations is what we desperately need but before we can cure the common cold, the germs that cause this devastating illness must be eliminated, Keep your money in your pockets. That's a guaranteed cure...
Good answer, Craig!
trucidus, I appreciate this truth that many will experience the journey of study,Php 1:9 And this is what I continue praying, that your love may abound still more and more with accurate knowledge and full discernment;
Accurate is important.

Wonderfully well addressed, I appreciate you sharing your point of view, and I so agree with you that not all people have experienced what others have.
So we can not judge people all the same ,like a doctor can not treat all his patients the same.
We all are equal as humans , but as the saying goes we will march at the sound of a different drum, according to what you understand and here.
We do not all here the same tune.
