Because fear works. It's been used by even Jesus, and Christians ever since.

Oddly, I had enough fire and brimstone sermons growing up that I miss them. They were really scary when I was a kid, and too everyone in the pews. Now I think they are funnier than Comedy Central. But they inoculated me from any fear now that I'm grown up ... tho many Christians still try to use it on me. After all, aren't I gonna burn in hell forever and ever if I don't keep the faith?
