was created, and exists in religions, primarily for one reason, and one reason only....CONTROL.
It is the ultimate OR ELSE threat. It's a powerful tool to keep a populace in line. DO IT, or you go to Hell, etc.
I'm more of the belief similar to bloodykids...your post mortem existence is likely more defined by your own state of mind, and personal
