Religion is operated like a business, it always has and always will be. Be under no illusion that profit, and power underpins many religious organisations around the world. Their accumulation of wealth far outweighs their devotion to God, and they hold onto power in a giant piggy bank of contradictions. They have no problem investing in stocks and shares, land ownership and other investments to help cement their powerful position in society. 

Their upper echelons of power are no different to a political organisation or a global company, and the further they climb up the ladder the more diluted their original intentions become. Inhouse squabbling, favouritism, and political aspirations all take place in the name of God. Political sway with governments and tax relief programs has ensured that many religious organisations over the years have seen massive increases in profit.
