to become christian is a matter of self conviction
it's written nowhere, neither on my id card or whatever
and maybe, i was a christian long before jÚsus
as some may have been solipsist without knowing it
but for a rabbi or an imam, it's another story: it is
said that the first rabbi outcasted was in fact jesus

Very few people who are Christian took up their faith deliberately, or thoughtfully. Most were subjected to the process of indoctrination immediately after birth, so that they couldn't examine their faith deliberately or thoughtfully. My wife was raised Catholic, and she still thinks of herself as one, but we did not indoctrinate our four children. Not one of them has become a Christian or an adherent of any other faith.

Interesting, to "become" a Christian is a choice. To be born a Jew or Muslim is a factor of heritage.

I like this. Very well thought out and written.
