We are a product of our up-bringing. We run cold away with fear from people that do not say the sweet endearment phrases that our mothers have spoiled us with. Aren't you a sweet thing? Oh how cute you look! Jesus loves you! We judge people based on their words and what their facial expressions are and by what kind sweet words that they have waiting for us, we befriend people that tell us how wonderful we are, and providing they do not judge us. People are even more than willing to pay a preacher to tell them just what they want to hear, isn't that so beyond foolish? This is the reason the church and religions are so popular, as long as you perform as prescribed, the church members and preacher will love you and brag on you, as long as you goose-step to their expectations, you're in, and most people are so afraid to step out of line, because of the fear and to disbelieve what their momma or relative told them that it was true, this would surely be perceived as a rebellious act against mother or father or church teachings, this is one reason the bible writers invented the threat of hell, to keep fear instilled into people so that they can control masses of people with fear, and the honor your mother and father thing, be sure to believe anything that they tell you, at all costs.
