Faith in Falsehood

Christians often tell me that even if Christianity were not literally true, they would try very hard to believe it. It makes them feel good. I find this attitude odd. I can’t think of any other sphere but religion where people extol being wrong. Drugs also make you feel good, but that alone is not sufficient reason to embrace them.

Christians imagine that their faith makes them behave better, but by any objective measure, they behave worse than non-believers. Why would this be?
