I always thought religion was found to control people (mind you I'm talking about religion, not God). As soon as people start having faith, you can manipulate that faith to your advantage.
I've seen the folks that go to church and I can ascertain how incredibly blind they can be.
E.g. when Dan Brown published his novels some of the modern christians I know was fascinated by them yet nobody really wanted to research and see if what he said was remotely true/possible. If anything they'd use the knowledge from the bible to disregard everything he said.
This is even more pronounced in Islam where power hungry leaders use average citizens to commit terrorist attacks. Apparently if you're killed while serving Islam, you'll be in heaven surrounded by 12 virgins. LOL! Makes me wonder if these people consider the heavenly sex ratio.
