How has hell become the most used method of psychological behavioral modification of all time?


The concept of hell has been used by religionists as the greatest deterrent for so-called errant behavior. The church fathers realized that in order to bring more people in the fold, some type of psychology has to be impetus to make their particular ideology more desirable, even welcoming. So the catch all word to do this was the concept of hell. Hell has been the greatest scare tactic that religionists have used to control and instill fear in the masses.
