Person Asks Why People Don’t Like Their ‘Word Of God’, Gets To Learn They’re Being Brainwashed

Not every country has the freedom of absolute free speech – but in countries where they do, one of the messages often spread is that of religion. People can convene, go door to door or spread flyers in an attempt to inform others about their religious beliefs and even persuade them into joining – however, the word of God is not always appreciated.

A lot of people get annoyed or even downright angry when they are disturbed by these religious groups recruiters and have no issue making it known to them. Looking for another way to get people to listen, someone on Quora asked the internet how they could get their religious message through to people without upsetting them – and got the perfect response.

Nothing was left out of this explanation – the brainwashing techniques used to employ recruiters, the thorough indoctrination and even mind control of the religious cults. Scroll down below to read the story for yourself.

Interesting. I've never thought of it that way. I've always thought it was really presumptuous for people to claim they were speaking for God. That includes priests, preachers, rabbis, inmans, whatever. It implies a superiority that I just can't accept.

Bored panda really needs to fix the arrow system on here, Cat Lady has put forward her first hand experience of doing this sort of work and her comment has been downvoted into oblivion, I'm an atheist and I don't believe that Jesus was a real man much less a man god but people should be able to put forward different viewpoints without their comments disappearing, maybe you guys could add a report button instead for people that leave troll comments.

Y'all ever notice how in Christian teachings Jesus ever tried to "sell" his teachings to anyone? He spent his time helping and healing people FIRST, and then maybe they decided to follow him if they WANTED TO.

the world would be a lot better off if modern Christians were more like the Christ that was portrayed in the bible. He was all about helping people that weren't doing as well as you and that's about it

Trying to sell your religion to strangers usually involves entering their personal space and sticking your nose into their personal beliefs , or lack of them, and you wonder why they don't appreciate it?

All too often it also seems to involve the stranger's pockets. There must be thousands of insecure people who have been fleeced by so-called Christian scientists, as well as a lot of other money-hungry preachers. https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/net-worth-richest-pastors-will-blow-your-mind.html/
