"Those who deny this are evil and wrong and should be put to death" ... it says that very often in your book. That particular assertion is utilized by dictators, not good ones either, and terrorists to justify heinous deeds. That is control, and nothing more, it's about making you too frightened to consider the evidence and assertions made, so you swallow it blindly, without question, without demanding any evidence at all.<quoted text>
Its not about control, thats just how you feel.
Christianity is about control, like all other organized religions.
