They claim it's because God wanted them too, I think that's the Christians belief or something a long the lines. Going to the church is a sign of belief, and giving to the church reinforces it. I don't understand why some churches need buildings, though? If God wanted his churches to be open 24/7 and available to anybody, they rarely do church outside were I live. And not everybody could go into them without being labeled a thief/liar. People from other religions are also seldom welcomed at the ones by me.

Churches do give to charity cases - a single mother with no job.  That's the only saving grace about churches, but I don't like the way they lie for the money.

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to Prayer Messages (PMs).

religion and the church are tax-exempted enterprises, that's why. when someone knocks on your door asking you to convert, that's just their pawns working for them.

All religions ask for money to maintain power and enslave You to their doctrine. Just like you pay taxes but your roads and bridges are broken

So many church mosque temple have been caught using money for themself only small amount goes to charity

Because they make you believe that giving them 10% of your earnings is the same as giving 10% of your earnings to God. At least with Christians.

Don't know why God needs 10%. It sickens me when I see family members just throwing their money away because they believe in a fairy tale.

Anyway, it's all very non Jesus like. That's the funny thing.

Obviously GOD need money for something. We need to ask him Smiley But truth to be told 'religion is opium of the people' in most cases. People is just people they don't communicate with almighty God in heavens, they just need to steal your money and build bigger church or better car for themselves. And for that they need a lot of money Smiley

Churches are businesses and take advantage of the naivity and stupidity of their believers. Believers like to think they can buy their way in to heaven so it's like taking candy from a baby.

The world's two largest religions (Islam and Christianity) are actually hugely successful business enterprises, which uses the brainwashed followers to their own advantage. Even the other religions (Hinduism and Buddhism) are recently following this trend.

If you follow a religion, well then you want a place to worship.

Since govt don't just give money - some form of donation is required.  Now a religion that says you _HAVE_ to give X or go to HELL or otherwise - thats just not kosher.

Most of the Islamic sects are also following a business model, encouraging conversions and all. There are hundreds of thousands of Islamic missionaries around the world. Islam was perhaps the first religion to make use of the demography, in order to strengthen their influence across the globe. They also possess very advanced financial aid groups to utilize the money, such as the Islamic Bank.

Some religions does, other do not, It's better to check your stuff before making that mistake, and usually religions that requires proxy are the ones that requires money (even if you look at the religion core, there is no mention of the need of some proxy of some sort)

Most of the Islamic sects are also following a business model, encouraging conversions and all. There are hundreds of thousands of Islamic missionaries around the world. Islam was perhaps the first religion to make use of the demography, in order to strengthen their influence across the globe. They also possess very advanced financial aid groups to utilize the money, such as the Islamic Bank.

As someone who traveled a lot, I've never seen such a thing, I've meet, Christian preachers, I've got several times a Bible copy and other books, I've even had some preachers knock my door to talk about Christianity here in Europe, but never seen that happening with Islam, also you are confusing the role of Islamic Banks, (which are just cooperative banks with Zero interesst rates when it comes to loans)

but again I might be mistaking, you can share your experience if you had encountered one ^^

Don't confuse zero interest rates as free loans - they are not - they charge a 'profit'.

No, You can have a loan for free with no profit behind (depending of the type of loan investiment from the bank of course) , as the bank will get it profit from somewhere else. It's a bank not just a loan institute
