They've hit rock bottom and their lives with Jesus are much better.

A lot of those types are con men that are, unfortunately, still conning.

It's pretty simple, really. They had to find a reason to live--and religion was probably the thing that gave them a hope and/or feeling that their lives had meaning.

True, but if you had approached those same people with the same rhetoric that they are now preaching (before their own coming to Jesus moment) they would have probably tried to kick your ass..

The word extreme is the constant with that type of person.

That would be my guess. Those people have been to the bottom, and religion helped them pull themselves up. Is it really surprising that they would be more excited about it than your typical church goer?

Those who have been forgiven much will love much.

quote:

41 Then Jesus told him this story: “A man loaned money to two people—500 pieces of silver[b] to one and 50 pieces to the other. 42 But neither of them could repay him, so he kindly forgave them both, canceling their debts. Who do you suppose loved him more after that?” 43 Simon answered, “I suppose the one for whom he canceled the larger debt.” “That’s right,” Jesus said. 44 Then he turned to the woman and said to Simon, “Look at this woman kneeling here. When I entered your home, you didn’t offer me water to wash the dust from my feet, but she has washed them with her tears and wiped them with her hair. 45 You didn’t greet me with a kiss, but from the time I first came in, she has not stopped kissing my feet. 46 You neglected the courtesy of olive oil to anoint my head, but she has anointed my feet with rare perfume. 47 “I tell you, her sins—and they are many—have been forgiven, so she has shown me much love. But a person who is forgiven little shows only little love.” 48 Then Jesus said to the woman, “Your sins are forgiven.”

Yeah but these people are extreme by nature. I'd argue that they just trade being addicted to drugs with being addicted to another mindset.

sadly true. Very common for cons to smoothe things over with society (and their PO's) by pretending to love Jesus.

A better question would be (before the whack): what percentage of the "faithful" are just going through the motions for some benefit or other.
