The idea of the “wrath of God” is much needed in the propagation of religions. The wrath of God creates fear. Who wouldn’t fear an angry and jealous all powerful God? This is the “cure all” for most religions. Hence, the very popular saying: “Thy will be done.” I will do the “will of God” because I don’t want to face the wrath of God.
Almost every religious leader claim to be the “messenger” of God. So he gives them the message of FEAR. He infuses love and all the other good virtues in his sermons, but he always culminates with the “fear of God”, doing “the will of God”, and the ever famous “wrath of God”.
