I thought you referring to the specific prosperity gospel thing where people think if they donate they will be rewarded.Nah, prosperity gospel is the belief that God rewards people with wealth/power. It's why churches (especially catholic ones) are often built with so much grandeur, to project power and (looted) wealth. The power structure that is the catholic church is quite disgusting. It's also a general undercurrent of our society.
I brought it up because it seems as though a few people here are conflating money with goodness or value.
The catholic church is rooted in medieval politics and stuff.
