Years ago when I mentioned that I really enjoyed watching a Christian TV evangelist a friend of mine said, “they just brainwash you into thinking positive.” His comment made me stop and think.
Am I really just getting brainwashed? Am I being deceived? Does it even matter?
It didn’t take me but a moment to answer my own questions.
I wasn’t being deceived. I was being conditioned to think positively. I was being taught to look for the good in the bad. I was being stretched to help the poor. I was being encouraged to take a risk. I was being given a gift of hope. I was told it is possible.
If that is what you call brainwashing then brainwash me all you want. My brain needs a good cleaning. How about you?
