I was brought up Wiccan/Druid/Protestant. How did it affect me? It opened my eyes to the magic of the mind. To how beautifully creative it can get when it desires to spread the message of good via simplistic values. And how dangerous a mind can be when it figures out that good can be used as a force for power. That power in return reaps the benefit of glory, and to achieve a level of desired fame via a force easily understood by vulnerable people yearning for guidance. And thus, religion and cult followings are formed. People who are arrogant and power hungry feed on the sheep who are too blind to see the word for itself. Those who see the word but disagree with the idol become enraged when the blind sheep become defensive, defensive over their hopeless idea of truth. A circle of arrogance is formed, and the leaders just sit back and watch their sheep mingle with other sheep, for they have all achieved their power with a message of good.

And that leaves us with the negative. For as long as there are sheep following the hungry leaders, the word of good and love will be foreshadowed by power and faith.
