Explaining v preaching v prostlyzing

53 posts in this topic

Explaining ones religion goes something like this:

Person 1: So what's your faith?

Person 2: Well, I'm a Christian.

Person 1: I see. What's doctrines and teachings does it involve?

Person 2: Well, There was this man Named Jesus, Christ whom we believe was the Son of God and who came to save us.

Preaching goes like this:

Person 1: So, what's your faith?

Person 2: Christianity, the one and only TRUE religion. Heed Jesus' infallible words or Die a heretic.

Person 1: ...

Person 2: So, what do you believe in?

Person 1: I'm Atheist.

Person 2: Heretic, Sinner! (and you can place the rest)

As for children and religion. They should discover it on their own and not be forced into it. They shouldn't be labelled as a religious child, shouldn't be put into schools named after saints (such is the way here in Ireland) and above all, they should be taught about acceptance of others' faiths too. If we did this, and let our children think for themselves, the world would be just a bit nicer because preachy, religious fundamentalists would be far fewer in numbers and kids would also not be having their heads filled with horrible stuff such as Hell and the fact that they're being watched by some invisible man, seriously, I could have done without that as a child myself.

Preaching or insanity?

They're usually packaged together.
