Ark, (I am that person. )I was reared in a progressive ELCA church as a child and did not come to faith out of fear, trauma, or blind indoctrination. For me, it was a search for “truth” and the reason behind things like the origin of life and the universe that ultimately led me to a conviction of God. It was a process over time, you see.
If one is raised in a Christian environment , no matter if it is considered ”progressive” – I am not really sure what this term actually means – the fundamental tenets of faith regarding the character Jesus of Nazareth and specifically his crucifixion and resurrection are the same.
This still sounds like indoctrination to me.
Like every other conversion claim I have read, I still see no evidence whatsoever for this particular claim either.
Many of you have been there, done that, got the T-shirt. Would any of you consider this person’s ”process over time” to be indoctrination or not?
