I will say this. Religion in general is used as a tool to control the masses. Christianity was handed to the slaves so they would be less likely to fight back. It gave them hope in an afterlife. A release from service, and in that way helped to quell rebellion.

Religion has always been used as a tool or justification in one way or another. So I won't completely discount what you are saying, though, I don't believe in the literal "they" concept, so it doesn't really fit into my world view.
