Indoctrination

This is for encouragement, ideas, and support for people going through a faith transition no matter where you hope to end up. This is also the place to laugh, cry, and love together.

Indoctrination

Post by deacon blues » Sun Aug 06, 2023 3:56 pm

To the tune of "Follow the Prophet."
Follow the prophet,
In-doc-tri-na-tion,
Through repetition
Still works today.
Follow the Prophet
In-doc-ti-na-tion
pure repetition,
Will make kids stay.

Just came to mind.
God is Love. God is Truth. The greatest problem with organized religion is that the organization becomes god, rather than a means of serving God.

Nice chorus, now we need verses.



So, verse

Nelson wanted profit in the latter day.
Tithing was essential, people had to stay.

Follow the prophet
In-doc-trin-nation
Through repetition….rest of chorus

Monson was a profiteer, who wi-igled (extend to 3 syllables to make scan) his ears
He got up to speak to audiences cheers.

Chorus

Chiko was a real prophet
But she was a she, that was something that just could not be.

(Verse 1)
In a world of thoughts and notions,
Seeking truth with open eyes,
We must question and explore,
Not be bound by mere disguise.

(Chorus)
Think for yourself, seek understanding,
Question and learn, with wisdom expanding,
In the realm of ideas, let your mind be free,
Break the chains of indoctrination, let curiosity lead.

(Verse 2)
Critical minds are like a beacon,
Shining bright in endless night,
Challenge dogmas, seek the real,
In the pursuit of what is right.

(Chorus)
Think for yourself, seek understanding,
Question and learn, with wisdom expanding,
In the realm of ideas, let your mind be free,
Break the chains of indoctrination, let curiosity lead.

(Bridge)
Let's break away from narrow views,
And embrace the world's diversity,
With empathy and open hearts,
We'll overcome adversity.

(Chorus)
Think for yourself, seek understanding,
Question and learn, with wisdom expanding,
In the realm of ideas, let your mind be free,
Break the chains of indoctrination, let curiosity lead.

Our ward added verses to the prophet song to include extra prophets.

I always wanted to tech the kids:

Don't follow Jonah
Don't follow Jonah
Don't follow Jonah
He ran away...

No one else thought it was funny...

Don't follow Judas...
He went astray...

Would love to hear a talk about Judas, how the greatest betrayal came from within, how apostles cannot always be trusted.
