I am willing to bet that there isn’t one day where a priest or one of those Bible-thumpers tells a lie in order to scare people into obeying the Ten Commandments. The Ten commandments are a good thing, don't get me wrong. But lying to get people to obey them is not right either.
Their biggest lie is when they talk about hell and the soul burning in hell forever and ever. Most of them claim that if you have not asked for forgiveness for your sins and you die, you go straight to hell. Now that is a lie and apparently that is one sin that God really hates. To hear them saying that, it’s as if God passes judgement on each individual as they die. Now if that is so then why did God say at the end of times He God will pass judgement and even the dead shall rise to be judged. To me it seems obvious that God only passes judgement then and not when each individual leaves this world.
So why those people lie like that (which by the way, they are supposed to uphold the commandments that were given to Moses, so why are they breaking one of them?), makes no sense to me. If they use that as an excuse for people to have more belief, it’s a poor way of doing it as a lot of people are aware of the commandments and they know that that person is not only lying but also committing a sin against God.
