When I was a kid, my mom would have me and my little brother go to a Seventh-Day Adventist church and I guess I didn't mind it too much even though I didn't understand one bit of it. As I got older I realized I wasn't interested in religion and I felt that it wasn't right for me.
I feel that a lot of people are brainwashed and believe anything that is told to them at church. I've had debates with my mom before because she has told me that it says in the Bible that if a person doesn't pay tithes and offerings then that person is hell-bound. How is that right? If I'm treating people the right way, taking care of my child, helping others who are in need, and being the best person that I can be, why would I go to hell if I don't pay tithes and offerings, or go to church? It just doesn't make sense to me, nor does religion.

first of all you ca't put ALL people who go to church in the YOUR personal definition of brainwasing because YOU have a problem with HOW your mother has presented tithe paying. Secondly, instead of jumping on the defense about this have you ever had an opened mind and heart to try it for yourself than make a judgment? Third do you know what all is involved in brainwashing? Maybe you should check your reasoning for your argument., so far it is moot.
