  • That's why the Bible was invented. To manipulate and scare people. THat might sound paranoid, but ummmm who wrote it? Hello!!! People wrote it! And who's better at manipulating other people? People!!! God doesn't manipulate, he loves. That's why I hate the Bible!!!!

  • No. God's Word is not meant to be used to manipulate. It's meant to guide and comfort.

  • If they tried, I wasn't aware of it. Then again, many times I have tuned out when the religious lecturing started.
