All religious works are used for emotional control, that is why they are made up, to control the little people, much like Santa.<quoted text>
The bible is actually abused by fascists like Bill Gothard, who is using it to emotionally abuse, and even physically, as well as sexually, young children, right from preschool age up to perhaps even 30(I'm not exxagerating, literally even up to 30 years old, "children" were deluded, Bill Gothard is very manipulative, he is 78 years old after all, he knows what he's doing). Just research what sort of person he is. The stories of the people who experienced parents under the "umbrella" of gothard are quite disturbing.
It is the only reason they exist
