9Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
10And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
11And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
If this doesn't sound like trying to control the masses, I don't know what does. Has it ever occurred to you people that this whole bible thing is nothing other than a means to control the populations? Has it ever occurred to you that your devil may have written it and is leading you to give up your soul? The dedication to some or most of the beliefs in the bible tells me that there's so many blind followers that your devil is preying on you as you read the book.
Why is it in the First Testament God is a mean, controlling, gruff, angry, all powerful deity but in the second Testament he's a kindly, gentle, loving deity? Which one of the books is wrong? And by the way, for those of you that seem to know - who really was the first wife of Adam. It wasn't Eve like the bible tells us. It was Lillith who was formed from the same earth that Adam was. But she went on her own way and God created Eve from Adaom's rib (yeah, right). Now tell me again - which book is right and which one is wrong. And PLEASE don't tell me to read the book. It isn't in there and you know it. That's just a side-step for those of you who don't have an answer.
Face it. It's all a bunch of bunk. There isn't shred of truth to any of it. How could there be? Who was around to write this stuff down? It's a controlling book for the masses; a direction if you will, on how to control people. It was written by the very first religious leaders to sway people into believing what they wanted them to so that they could be controlled. And you modern believers are demonstrating the very same mentality that these original writers depended on from the people in order to control them. And we ALL know they weren't very smart back then.
