So what do you think?

Is it the word of God or is it a tool to control the masses?

Controlling the masses. People need something to look to in times of need. and there are always people in need.

Both, frankly... unfortunately, those of high intelligence, and a bent for control, recognize it's potential, while those that live and die by the parable, which they take as reality, don't realize that it IS parable. The Bible is, IMHO, along the lines of a Miss Manners book of etiquette, but has been inflated so far out of context that it will never be realized for it's true purpose, OR worth.

Sad.

The Bible is the very Word of God and is about Freedom, Truth, and Love

However, it is true that evil institutions have used the bible and the name of God to deceive and control people for 2000 years. The Roman Catholic Church is the prime example of evil done in disguise of Christianity, and control held over people in defiance of the Bible.

Re: Is the bible a book to control the weak and desperate or is it something much more?
I've come to the conclusion that it's either the "somewhat in a way sorta" Word of God or it's a CURSE also used as a tool to control the masses.

I did a word calculation on the Bible and went through and picked out words and divided them up as neutral, positive, and negative. In other words, divided them by what emotions they would likely evoke when seen rather in context or out (some words like death always evoke a negative effect even when the context is something on the order of "you shall not die").

I concluded that when you randomly open the Bible you have a 70% chance of seeing a negative word rather than a positive one (excluding neutral words from the equation). That means, when you open the Bible the probability is that you will evoke an emotion of condemnation or negativity over twice as often as you will evoke an emotion that is uplifting or brings peace. I also concluded that certain words appear most often and they are all strongly emotional words (with the exception of "the" and other such words).

I further found that if the Bible were about God and the path to Him that one would expect Him to be the proper noun most often occurring, but that is not so. The Bible is actually about "Lord," or "one who has power and authority over others."



I also understand much about mysticism and magick these days, and I can rightly say that I am highly suspicious that the Bible is not only a tool of control, but also a magickal curse. Frankly, the NT comes right out and tells you that you will be persecuted and hated and as such, if you believe the Bible is the true right and perfect Word and Will of God, you are cursing yourself by believing it.

There are other things that make me suspicious as well.

I'll leave "who might benefit" from this up to interpretation...

I would be more interested in all the words the church edited out of the bible, What was the real message god was trying to tell us, before the church concealed, burnt and destroyed his word.

If in fact it is his word, why try and hide or destroy the message!

The Bible is a clever MIX of truth and manipilative stories to control the masses.

That is how propaganda always worked.

Ask any religious sheep how they can be HAPPY in Heaven of one of their loved ones would be in hell.

You'll be amazed at the ridiculous answers you'll get.

Nowhere in the Bible is explained what LOVE really is, then you'll see why...
