Steph asked: Are you encouraged to share your belief with others in the hope that they will "join" your religion? Why or why not?
Sure. We feel that if people understand the wisdom of Scientology then that will improve them and help achieve the goals of Scientology that I described earlier.
On the other hand a person can be a Scientologist and a member of another religion, so there is no "conversion" in the Western religious sense of the word. We are more interested in people understanding and applying the wisdom because that's what will make a difference in the world.
