Doesn't matter what the content is. Holy books, traditions, secular laws . . . People (especially those with power) will try to use it to further their own ends, regardless of whether those goals are compatible with the original content/intent.Nope. Those so-called holy books are subject to later changes and/or interpretations and annotations which cause a discourse tradition. This tradition can become so strong it overshadows the original message. Theology is pretty aware of problem of mutation, that is why everyone tries to find the earliest scriptures possible, as they are assumed to be void of later intrusions.
