oh yeah... and it also keeps Christians from looking at alternative viewpoints, because it insists that there are no respectable alternative viewpoints, only pathetic justifications for evil.

you forgot the reason i most often encounter - people deconvert from Christianity because they want to sin and so they have to get rid of God so they don't feel guilty about sinning all the time. there is no such thing as sincere unbelief. all unbelief is intentional self-deception arising from rebellion. i think this is a very good one for apologetics reasons. it makes God seem very just in condemning unbelief. it makes people afraid to question or doubt (because they would only do that if they were evil). and it reinforces ingroup bias (non-Christians are willful, evil and rebellious and Christians are humble, obedient and good).
