People claim Christianity is a brainwashing method. Can you explain how this can be? The whole faith can be summed up to this:
Love and appreciate God our one true maker,
gain self-control over the curse of sin that we had inherited from Eve,
and love one another as we love ourselves(which means treat people as you want to be treated.)
How is this brainwashing?

it is only brainwashing when a Christian takes everything in the Bible literally and they don't use the mind God gave them to decide for themselves what His plan is. Many Christians just take what their preacher tells them at face value and only read verses in the Bible that the preacher suggests. They don't do deeper into the faith to hear what God is really telling them. That's the way I see it at least.

The reason that God decides to drown the entire world, killing nearly every living person and animal on earth, is his belief that people are evil and unworthy of existence (Genesis 6:5). So what if they were evil? As Lenny Bruce once exclaimed, “The fault lies with the manufacturer!” God allegedly created humans, yet he faults us for being guided by our desires, instincts, and natural tendencies. Since he’s supposedly omniscient, God realized how we were destined to turn from the beginning. Let's see how christians answer this. Because for every problem or contradiction found in the bible they have a pre-programmed response. Nine times out of ten it's " You're taking it out of context."

the love one another part is what jumps out at me because there are too many so called Christians that say it and look for anyway to demean, discriminate, or judge people by skewing verses of the bible to suit their beliefs and they teach their children the same I find that brain washing.
