I feel that none of the words that people tend to use about Christianity clearly nail its actual nature and purpose.
Christianity, in my view, is the most advanced science and practice of ethnocide ever devised in human history.
Its ultimate purpose is to undermine all human cultures found on Earth through its ever more refined ethnocidal weapons, such as inculturation.
This undermining works to gradually supplant the autonomy and inherent syncretism of the targeted culture with the heteronomy and unnatural homogenization that the church administration represents.
Christianity was the original instigator -- the gene and the meme -- of European colonialism and imperialism that continues to destroy cultural diversity and syncretism across the world at such a rapid pace that human survival has become threatened.
So ethnocide, heteronomy (or undermining of cultural autonomy) and homogenization make up the quintessence of Christianity.
Ethnocide, heteronomy (or undermining of cultural autonomy) and homogenization are also the defining characteristics of what European (or Western) colonialism has done to the world in the last 500 years.
I like to connect these dots in order to get the fuller picture.
In my view, Christianity -- indeed the whole Judeo-Christian-Islamic imperialism -- needs to be seen without the red herrings of fraudulent concepts/categories like religion, secular domain, political domain, economic domain, etc.
Behind these fraudulent concepts/categories lies unvarnished colonialism/imperialism.
So whether it's Judeo-Christianity, or the West, or Islam -- it's all colonialism/imperialism which seeks continuously to expand its domain by enslaving ever larger chunks of humanity.
So please try to see through a conceptual fraud like 'religion' and understand that this fraudulent category is applicable only and only to Judeo-Christianity and Islam -- and not to other human cultures, Indic or non-Indic.
In other words, please stop mislabelling human 'cultures' as 'religions'.
India, for instance, never produced anything that remotely resembles 'religion'.
Why do we denigrate our own autonomous and syncretistic cultures by labelling them as 'religion' -- thus putting them in the same fraudulent category that consists of Judeo-Christianity and Islam?
While the soul of Bharatiyata -- indeed of all human cultures -- is 'syncretism', the fraudulent concept of 'religion' rejects and execrates 'syncretism'.
Judeo-Christianity and Islam are dangerous and pernicious for all human cultures precisely because they reject -- even anathematize -- 'syncretism'.
Check the Vatican website, for instance, to understand how it views 'syncretism'.
Islam rejects 'syncretism' by branding it as 'Shirk', an Arabic word whose more specific meaning is 'to include others in the unique status of Allah'.
