Crak, you missed what I was saying and still associate it with the religion.

From a different perspective, the religious leaders teach exactly as you just said. This builds in a person >>>a strong conviction against suicide.<<<

Indoctrination into the ass-hole group builds on those teachings but,
plays on the person's already low self-value making them feel that:
1)Their low mood, resultant of [a low quality of life/a sense of extreme loss,] is divine punishment for some specific misdeed.
2)The ass-hole group is better than them because it is devoted to a divine cause.
3)Free will is the enemy of the divine cause.
4)They can earn an extreme reversal of fortune by complete devotion to the group ass-holes.

The set has shi# to do with the actual religions.
Islam, Judaism and Christianity, each tell a person "Beware of false profits," specifically warning members against this set.

CodeJockey: Most Christians believe that all you need to do to get into heaven is confess your sins, Ask for forgiveness, and believe in Jesus Christ. You don't have to `earn` salvation by doing `good deeds`, But most Christians do feel the need too.

Please refrain from lumping all religions together and then making summary judgments of them as a group.

Cont

5) Indoctrination is centered on the idea that ALL PEOPLE ARE UNWORTHY OF PARADISE and must find a way to earn it.

This puts people in a state of mind to look for an opportunity to 4, especially when they have been broken down by their own actions (2) and/or have had and lost love/close family.
