The first one is pretty easy. A guy has been waiting his entire life for a chosen one, and the chosen one tells him that his god is evil. Is it reasonable to have the guy quietly start to doubt his faith? Rather than screaming blasphemy and getting in a fight over it.

The second question is about the apathetic christian. I can't remember much of what it was like. I have a feeling that someone who simply went to church because that's what Sundays are for wouldn't know that there were two trees in the garden of Eden, or what happened to Cain after he killed Abel. I have no clue what they would say about their religion if directly asked, and it would take someone directly asking for them to say anything. The one asking is an alien that simply knows our language and the wider concepts that go along with it.

The first requires way more information than you have there, and entirely depends on the individual and the religion in question.

As for the second, it depends. It's very possible to have a much better knowledge of Christian / biblical information than most, and for that to be why they don't really believe anymore, but continue to go due to habit. Christian writings, both the New Testament and the various other documents that doctrine in various churches depend on are REALLY, REALLY contradictory in places. However, if you go with that angle, you'd better make damned certain that you know your New Testament, early Christian history, etc, very well.

Hmmm, I think I'd go opposite route for my character. Got dragged to church but never gained an interest. I'm going for simplicity, but it's not so simple for me because I built a religion for myself where I sampled equal doses of research and cough medicine.


For the first, it's Janos Audron. When Cthulu stopped talking to his people, a lot of them committed suicide. I'm treating him as faith on a different level, where he hates his god's enemies more than he loves his god.
