Response to If you can't beat em.... join em?
is that it sort of works like "beginner's luck". When first a person is introduced to spiritual "power" and signs himself to it ... it WORKS! But over time, the "miracles" become fewer and fewer and the person dedicates himself more and more to serving it .. in hopes of getting back that original big bang.
I don't know what it is or what to call it but it seems to be the same kind of thing that happens with drugs: at first it's fantastic ... then the effect wears off ... and then the "addicted" person does more and more drugs in an attempt to capture that first glorious experience.
In the pursuit of that elusive euphoric goal ... a lot of needless destruction and heartbreak is often wrought. It's "for the greater good" ... after all.
