"Means of Control" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward
I know one of the biggest reasons why churches control people. It's because if you can't control the parts, you can't control the whole.
That is, if you can't keep people in line, the security of the establishment is constantly compromised.
In order to secure the future of the church, you have to secure the people.
