Fear Brings People to Religion

What determines the conversion of a 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 is a rare person.  Some would say that the truth and common sense about sacred doctrines would lean a person toward a religion. But are our sacred books derived from God or from man?

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 were not true, why would millions of people accept the degradation of females, annihilation of their enemies, and the belief in the damnation of nonbelievers? Their religious clerics declare their authority from God and warn of God’s wrath if their laws are not obeyed. It is this fear that they hold their people hostage, and prevent their people from enlightenment.

Today, 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. It is this mind of love that will bring upon joy and prosperity to the world.

Please give me your thoughts!

    It is now Age of judgement
    Matthew 10
    34- 36 “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to turn “‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law– a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’
