FEAR and ETERNAL SALVATION are the greatest tools that was ever created by religion. EVERY! religion past and present, used these mechanisms to control the flock.<quoted text>
Correct. If we were perfect, maybe, but then He is a God of love. Catholics, most religions teach hellfire to keep their congregation coming back. Sense eventually will rule the world over to end this crappy story.
Without using FEAR/ETERNAL SALVATION as tools, religions wouldn't exist.
Life long FEAR should never take a foothold in ones conscience.
