The Power of Fear in our Churches

What is the main factor which determines the conversion of person to a religion? I believe it is fear. Some would say it is love of God that makes a person lean toward a particular religion, but I believe that this a rare person.  Some would say that a religion should make sense to the individual, but the holy books are full of nonsensical stories and myths.

It is this fear that religious authorities use in suppressing their people.   They warn about the wrath of God which people should fear if they oppose God’s will. If this is not true,  why would millions of people accept the degradation of females, when common sense would show that all humans are equal. Their religious clerics declare their authority from God and place fear on their congregation. It is this fear that they want others to feel when they commit their outrageous inhuman acts of terror.  They declare that their authority comes from an all powerful God, a God that should be feared.

It is not the love of God that brings the majority of people to religion, but it the fear of God. This is why fear permeates the world, and why peace and joy are still far away in the future.  This is why we must seek religions that convey the truth that God loves all mankind.
