When you think of religion, the word selflessness is almost always in the equation. They say that the love of money is the root of all evil. So why is there so much money in religion? If you haven’t noticed by now, pastors and churches are making some serious cash. Have you ever wondered where your weekly donation goes? You want to believe it’s going towards a good cause, right?
