What do you think of forcible conversion ?
How do you feel when you read or hear about forcible conversion into some religion ?
It is a sin against the religion. Not only that, it is cheating and attacking on the individual liberty.
Not good, I hear about them most often in remote areas. You have to choose (their religion) in order to land a job or marry someone from their flock or you become part of their society. If you refuse you cannot do business with them and if ever you violate any rule in their area, surely nobody will protect you.
if you think about it, bringing kids to church from birth is exactly that. how can someone decide if god is real and religion is right if it's been part of their lives since birth.
Utterly repugnant and wrong-headed. Also an oxymoron, if 'conversion' denotes a sincere change of heart.
Doc Snow took the thoughts right outta my head, from a human point of view. From a God-downward point of view, I'd say that ALL Christian conversions are equivalent to being Divinely drafted into the Army of Christ, based on Jesus' statement, "You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit" in John 15:16. You'll notice, too, in the Gospels, that when Jesus said to the fellows, "Come, follow Me" there was no negotiation, simply obedience.
Granted, this is my redneckish Calvinist point of view that has had libraries of contrary literature written to refute it down through the centuries, but I find it rather comforting...but then, I would! Enjoy your day!!
