What was I going to say again...Oh, yea.
The entire Bible is set up as a 'confusion technique' document.
It evolves to a certain extent but like an old, worn audio disc playing through it's tune, the needle(or stylus) just naturally 'skips' back, hence Creationism, Intelligent Design, Pro-life and other wedge issues.
The wedge issues are an important part of religion as believers want to force their opinions on the less devout.
Believers are on a 'mission from God' to have everyone subject to GOD. This becomes obvious when reading the famous TEN COMMANDMENTS right 'out of the gate', we hear that GOD HAS SPOKEN and he's telling us that it is a CRIME to worship any other god but HIM.
What believers are telling us, is that the church(their religion) IS 'GOD' and that it must be obeyed. They will deny it, of course. They use 'confusion technique' on everyone, including themselves to aviod facing reality.
They believe that there was, in order of appearance, God, various other spirit beings, the universe and all non-spiritual beings and things, semi-spiritual beings which are human beings(or MANKIND as they like to put it), a general 'falling from grace', a very few ELECT(intrinsically GODLY men who recorded history and prophecies of the future) who were IN CONTACT with GOD!(hence their GODLINESS!)
They are confused between 'the good' and 'the Godly' and they want us all to be confused about that too.
Example:- At this point in time(in 'the west') we are clear that slavery is wrong, that subjegating a person is inherently 'bad'.
But the Bible is unclear about this. We hear, in the story of the Exodus that slavery IS bad(for the Hebrews) but later we hear that slavery is not necessarilly unGodly!
