This is true by and large, but I argue that some Christians become Christian Believers through being transformed in their minds rather than simply culturally indoctrinated.
Indoctrination IS the process that transforms a mind.
noun noun: indoctrination the process of teaching a person or group to accept a set of beliefs uncritically. "I would never subject children to religious indoctrination" ARCHAIC teaching; instruction. "methods that were approved for indoctrination in divinity"
quote:If Jesus were simply human while on earth then there would be no transformation of any individual through encountering him while he was alive or encountering the mysterious Holy Spirit(Holy Ghost) after Jesus was raised.
Don't be daft, people are 'transformed' by fraudsters, charismatic preachers and individuals for all sorts of bonkers belief systems. All just human.
If you want to see real, thoroughgoing transformation of people study the Muslim suicide bombers. Was David Koresh (Waco cult) also not 'simply human?'
