Some religious sectors are attracting followers by promise of financial wealth, which their faith will bestow upon them. These sectors give the impression that their focus is more into business than charity. Nothing surprising if their focus is center around money.
It seems to be more prevalent amongst 'new age' religions.
One of them which is involved in land acquisition and building of a entertainment center recently advertised in the papers regarding their Easter production. Their belief system is reflected in the advertisement -
"life-book - IT IS NOT WHAT YOU KNOW, BUT WHO YOU KNOW.
And so success is not about what you know but who you know, is not about what you own but who owns you."
It seems to imply that you will bump into rich folks when you join their center and it will lead you down the path of financial wealth. Well, this is another modern day dream in religious form.
