Our way of living as Christians should be based as written on the gospels of our Lord Jesus Christ
Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Indoctrination is the study of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, the ways of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Timothy 6:3
If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;
There are those who teach contradictory doctrines or doctrines which are not of our Lord Jesus Christ.
So we are going to find out the doctrines of our Lord Jesus Christ.

In religion if we are to believe in anything it should be based on the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ.
For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.
The doctrines and commandments that we should hold fast is the doctrines and commandments of God and not that of men, like most persons are teaching.
Religion should not be done recklessly, in practicing religion we should do a great deal of scrutiny before joing any religion, because there are people who are teaching other doctrines so we won't be deceived.

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

The first thing that Paul was instructed to do when he left Judaism was to get baptized.
1 Corinthians 1:1-2
Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother, Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:
And was unknown by face unto the churches of Judaea which were in Christ: But they had heard only, That he which persecuted us in times past now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed.
When Paul was in the Jewish religion he persecuted the church of God, and when he was called he preached the faith which he once persecuted.
