    And a free Jesus-flesh-and-blood snack every Sunday!

    (FYI, just attended my first Catholic wedding last week. And, whew, there was a lot of sitting, standing, kneeling, standing, sitting exercise going on. Good experience though.)
    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    Political power, personal control of millions and trillions upon trillions of dollars a year tax-free. It's a wonderful little scam that the guy can stand up in the pulpit telling you to give him money so he doesn't have to get a real job and everything he promises you only comes true after you die and can't come back to tell everyone else it's a lie. P.T. Barnum was absolutely right.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    What did the early Christians gain from it on this earth except for being martyred?

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24
    "True law is right reason in agreement with nature . . . Whoever is disobedient is fleeing from himself and denying his human nature [and] will suffer the worst penalties . . ." - Cicero

    A sense of belonging and a worldview that gave them the answers to all the hard questions without having to figure them out on their own. But you're asking the wrong question.

    What did the early Christian leaders gain from it?

    You just keep in telling yourself that, maybe one day you might convince someone that it's true.
