actually learning about the history of christianity is the most dangerous thing possible to evangelicalism, which is a reactionary ideology that seeks to erase history so it can make the ridiculous claim that its very particular brand of morality and theology is the true form of christianity that has always existed

to illustrate this point: nothing cured me of evangelicalism faster than studying the history of theology, and i was actively discouraged from doing so by the spiritual leaders in my life

tfw you are a religion that only persists by actively avoiding to teach your followers about anything

so now we are in this situation where religion is largely perceived as this thing where you just have to turn your brain off and believe whatever you are told, when for thousands of years religion was seen as an intellectual and practical pursuit. simply wonderful
