Call it anything you like but the process of convincing someone of anything is an act of selling.
Before you can sell anyone anything a need or desire must be created
The religious need is that you are filth covered in sin and to avoid the eternal consequences of said filth and sin you need what they are selling....salvation
Remove the need and the product sits on a shelf gathering dust
This is why Christianity invented hell
Prior to gentle Jesus meek and mild there was no such thing. The ancient jews had no such concept believing only in a place literally under the earth. The new testament hell was an extrapolation of a dump where the garbage and bodies of criminals were periodically set on fire...a landfill.
Same thing with satan. No such critter existed and when he was introduced, he rapidly was evolved (on purpose) into the entity the superstitious know and fear today. He was created, like hell, as a sales technique by the church to sell salvation.
Things you ought to know before you "believe"
It's funny how all of these bible thumpers are experts on the bible when no one will ever know who was the authors of the bible. How can one be an expert on the bible when one can't even prove who wrote it in the first place?
Uh...Christianity didn't invent hell. Hell and satan are described in the book of: Genesis, Job, Ezekiel, Jeremiah, all old testament..Etc. satan was symbolized as the serpent in the 3rd chapter of the 1st book, Genesis. Pud, you chose to believe in what "you" can see, feel, touch, taste, smell...Etc. You know, like air, gravity, wind, protons, your brain and other internal organs...You know, all the things you can see, hear, feel and touch - PROVIDING PROOF they are not a figment of your imagination...The tangible things!! There's plenty that goes on that you have never seen in your life - Yet, you still believe. DELUSIONAL!!
That is absolutely incorrect. The current view of satan as the antithesis of god and a literal hell was a creation of the church. The original "satan' you refer to is just an agent of god not the evil doer of today. You should do your homework before engaging pie hole
Informing someone of a truth and letting them decide what to do about it is not selling. It is educating.
Persuading someone that a falsehood is truth is selling. It is deception.
Of course you wouldn't understand these things since you live a whole life of SELF deception.
De-Christianizers and seculars who simply destroy and subvert withoutout offering a competing product are part of an agenda that by and large seems to lead to inferior social, economic and political outcomes. The record of states built outside a religious construct is plain enough for anyone to see as monstrously inferior.
There is something very fishy about a force that is built soley as an antithesis. On its face it smacks of authoritarianism.
