Maria is quite correct. Mystery Religions of old all had exoteric and esoteric teachings. Those still beginners in the outer teachings realized that whoever controlled what the people were to know about God held the power. Desiring power, they took the ball and ran with it. Many of the Inner Teachings were lost and destroyed. Those knowing the truth had to go into hiding if they wanted to live. In this way, power was taken from the individual to relate to that which we call God on a personal level and power was given to the priests to control the masses.
