Misbehave and you're going to suffer eternally (Hell, Satan) - so people, not knowing any better at the time, with the general population far less
educated than todays, then behaved. Behave and you'll go to heaven ,with God - Again similar situation.
No wonder you are so against Christianity. According to your post, you have no idea what a follower of Christ or a Christian is. There is nothing

have it just to get by.
I find it disturbing, yet not surprising, more people are not bothered by this.
Thank you for your comments.
