Brainswashing is associated with torture as you state, but is also evolved from wartime kinds of brainwashing/torture, to kinds of mind control that are not, and used in cult and other new religious conversion. Tactics are explained in the link to some extent. Its a fine line, where if you take the idea brainwashing uses violant techniques, to what degree is it considered torture? Is spanking a child a technique of torture and brainwashing, some people think it is now.

Can a non Christian help someone understand what it means to be a Christian?

I'm sure there are many who hope that is the case... But I wonder... if we are mind controlled or victims of propaganda, why is there still such a huge divide among who we vote for?
