Was Christianity only created as a way to make money, between collection plates in church and selling Christian merchandise like bibles, rosary beads, crosses, pictures of Jesus for the home
i have even heard of cases where popes have scammed people out of money for forgiveness from god ..i heard pope Julius the second basicly said "god will forgive anything - if u pay me enough money" I know that's probably not his exact words
...I'm am very sorry if I have offended anybody

A friend of mine told me that her aunt paid money to the church to get her dead husband into heaven.  Sounds creepy to me.  Dont know how that would work. 
Seems to me religion is just another power trip for men.  Just like big goverment and big business and big military.  Big religion is just the same.  It does not matter which religion.

“Religion is based primarily upon fear. It is partly the terror of the unknown and partly as the wish to feel that you have a kind of elder brother who will stand by you in all your troubles and disputes. Fear of the mysterious, fear of defeat, fear of death. Fear is the parent of cruelty, and therefore it is no wonder if cruelty and religion have gone hand in hand. It is because fear is at the basis of those two things. In this world we can now begin a little to understand things, and a little to master them by help of science, which has forced its way step by step against the opposition of all the old precepts. Science can help us to get over this craven fear in which mankind has lived for so many generations. Science can teach us, and I think our own hearts can teach us, no longer to look around for imaginary supports, no longer to invent allies in the sky, but rather to look to our own efforts here below to make this world a fit place to live in, instead of the place that the churches in all these centuries have made it.”---------------------------------- Bertrand Russell.

Same goes with Christianity.

I understand why most people would think it is a scam but Christianity isn't all about the money collected it is also about faith. Having faith and believing that all the good things you do no matter how painful it may be, has it's reward in heaven. JESUS IS REAL!!!!

I believe that human thoughts have power.  That is really what prayer is.   You don't need a religion to direct your thoughts.  There are many books that were not included in the bible.  Why?  Because they might have conflicted with what men wanted you to believe.
