Money and religious thought

There is a thought that seems religious among those who believe that everything can be fixed with money and wealth means perfection.

The religious thought between those who do not accept that life is this little thing we share with other animals and plants.

Those with religious thought believe that the truly real is intangible, while the tangible is a consequence of the intangible forces generally unified in the concept God.

What religion can not accept is this mortifying powerlessness we feel, the limitations of earthly life will seem intolerable, imperfections they are abominable, shameful, odious.

Conversely, religious love only that which is powerful, absolutely devoid of weaknesses, frailties, cowardice.

The highest religious aspirations lead them to not accept anything that is not "sacred". Therefore scornfully reject profane.

People are particularly suitable for luxury, wealth, pomp, magnificence, but may live in situations exactly opposite, that is, poverty, scarcity, frugality, austerity.

If we look at the beauty and splendor of some religious buildings we can assume that only the sacred area corresponds believe represent what actually find in the sacred figures: the gods are wealth, perfection, power, omnipotence but humans only have that than fleeing religious, that is, the power of the material vain.

Just as people with religious thought despise the material, especially money, we often meet people who overestimate the power of money.

There is a thought that seems to be religious to recognize it because it always seeks economic solutions to the problems that affect them, they assume that everything is arranged with silver, assigning this that religious attributes found in God alone.
