So you have to trust the people in authority who, supposedly, understand what god wants, and have read the Greek and Hebrew and whatnot.
Therefore, when the Catholic leadership tells you to burn women at the stake as witches, or to torture Protestants, or to slaughter native people and enslave them, or to go and kill everyone between Jerusalem and Italy, you do it.
Because you know they are correct. They understand Greek and whatnot.
But of course. That is why the Inquisition killed any who dared read the Bible except approved talking heads.
I mean, the Dark Ages would still be here if Christianity had their way.
The last thing religions want is an intelligent population because they would not believe all the lies.
