The relationship with God people have in evangelical systems can be equated to a term often used in therapy: Trauma Bonding.

Humans used to mainly fight over religion but now it is all about information. Who has the right "facts" or best sources.
We live in the information age. The time in human history where we have the most information at our fingertips tips but because of fear and a desire for domination and control (often based on religious ideals) we are rendering the most crucial information useless.
