Don’t ever underestimate the importance of preaching to the choir.
Christianity, whatever you believe about it, was the most successful movement in history. Even an athiest who does not study the history of Christianity is a fool.
Those who spread Christianity did not say, “OK, you’re baptised, now I’ll go somewhere else and leave you to yourself.”
Christianity insisted that everybody, including the choir, show up at least once a week for a sermon. Every service began with a recitation of the Creed.
The entire congregation had to gather at least once a week and reassert its loyalty and be preached to.
Including the choir.
