5 Richest Religious Organizations In The World

5 Richest Religious Organizations In The World


5 Richest Religious Organizations Do you believe in the existence of God? Well, most of you do and we want your full
focus. By believing in God, people have faith that
their soul is safe with God and there is something positive waiting for everyone. Religion celebrates the spirit of positivity
and hope and thus religious organizations are formed. But they have to be funded and who funds them? Yes, it’s us- the followers, the tax payers. But you would be surprised to know that your
hard earned money has made these organizations a wealthy setup. If you ever think about the unequal income
distribution within your country or globally, know that a big chunk of wealth goes to religious
institutes which do not have to pay taxes even! Number 5. Church of Scientology
L. Ron Hubbard incorporated the first Scientology church in December 1953 in Camden, New Jersey. By this time the Hubbard Association of Scientologists
International had already been operating for a year and Hubbard himself had already been
selling Scientology books and technologies. In 1953, Hubbard announced the religious nature
of Scientology in a bulletin to all Scientologists, stressing its relation to the concept of Dharma,
derived from Indian religions. And then the first Church of Scientology opened
in Los Angeles the very next year. But what is scientology all about? In the words of Hubbard, “A civilization
without insanity, without criminals and without war, where the able can prosper and honest
beings can have rights, and where man is free to rise to greater heights, are the aims of
Scientology.” This basic idea lead to its credibility as
a religion in various countries but been described as both a cult and a commercial enterprise
and is thus scrutinized! The reason behind this is that the religion
is subscription based with members going up in rank as one pays a required fee. The highest rank is Operating Thetan VIII
that costs around $256,000. It is said that the net worth of the Church
of Scientology is about $1 billion! In fact Tom Cruise is a member of the Church
of Scientology and donates generously to it! Number 4. The Church of England
The state church of England is The Church of England which is also the mother church
of the international Anglican Communion. The Church of England’s earliest origins
date back to the Roman Catholic Church’s influence in Europe during the 2nd century. But the church’s official formation is said
to be started by King Henry VIII during the Reformation in England in the 16th century. In the 1530s, the King broke ties with the
Pope, any idea why? The Catholic Church wouldn’t allow him to
annul his marriage to his first wife, Catherine of Aragon, who didn’t produce any male heirs. And thus he declared himself the supreme head
of the Church of England. But in 1553 Queen Mary succeeded the throne
and embraced traditional Roman Catholic ideals. Today the Church upholds many of the customs
of Roman Catholicism while it also embraces fundamental ideas adopted during the Protestant
Reformation. We wonder if their liberal outlook took their
net worth to $7.8 billion with more than $320 million in donations and $400 million through
its events and services. Number 3. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
This Nontrinitarian, Christian restorationist church is considered by its members to be
the restoration of the original church founded by Jesus Christ. This seems to justify the $40 billion net
worth of the Church! Yea people, this really is the worth of the
fastest-growing and richest religions in the world. Its members are called Mormons and can be
found everywhere, from Scandinavia to Japan. At the turn of the 21st century, Mormon assets
were already being estimated to be at over $30 billion with an annual revenue of $6 billion. The most amazing thing is that 90% of this
amount comes from member contributions called tithing, in which members are required to
give 10 percent of their entire income! Number 2. The Roman Catholic Church
As one of the oldest religious institutions in the world, the Roman Catholic Church, is
the largest Christian church, with more than 1.29 billion members worldwide. And has played a prominent role in the history
and development of Western civilization. The hierarchy of the Catholic Church is headed
by the Bishop of Rome, known as the pope, who is the leader of the worldwide Catholic
Church. The current pope, Francis, was elected on
13 March 2013 by papal conclave. The pope is also Sovereign of Vatican City,
a small city-state entirely enclaved within the city of Rome, which is an entity distinct
from the Holy See. It is as head of the Holy See, not as head
of Vatican City State. Church membership at the end of 2014 was 1.272
billion, which is 17.8% of the world population. Catholics represent about half of all Christians. Catholic priests are expected to make a vow
of poverty, so it is ironic that the church is actually the richest religion in the world. The Catholic Church owns some of the greatest
art works ever made which are priceless in addition to land and properties which cannot
be sold, donations and gold owned. Therefore, the actual worth of the Church
cannot be quantified and remains a mystery! But all is not rosy, from the late 20th century,
the Catholic Church has been criticized for its doctrines on sexuality, its refusal to
ordain women and its handling of sexual abuse cases! Number 1. Padmanabhaswamy Temple
Located in Thiruvananthapuram, India, the Padmanabhaswamy Temple is built in an intricate
fusion of the indigenous Kerala style and the Tamil style of architecture. The principal deity Vishnu is enshrined in
the “Anantha Shayanam” posture, the eternal yogic sleep on the serpent Adisheshan. Sree Padmanabhaswamy is the tutelary deity
of the royal family of Travancore. The titular Maharaja of Travancore Moolam
Thirunal Rama Varma is the trustee of the temple. In line with the Temple Entry Proclamation,
only those who profess the Hindu faith are permitted entry to the temple and devotees
have to strictly follow the dress code. The temple is the wealthiest place of worship
in the country because vaults when A, C, D, E and F were opened and monumental items worth
$18 billion were found. These included a three-and-a-half feet tall
solid pure golden idol of Mahavishnu, studded with hundreds of diamonds and rubies and other
precious stones, gold crowns, gold chains, coins and plenty of other things. It is said that if the antique and cultural
value were taken into account these assets could be worth ten times the current market
price. But vault B has not been opened since 1880s
because it is believed to be guarded by cobras! The record of that opening says that the treasure
was worth $1.8 billion but if you consider inflation and rise of prices of gold and silver,
the current worth could be about $770 billion! But since the vault hasn’t been opened,
we can’t be sure of what lays inside it! Is there any other religious organization

  2. Am from Padmanabha Swamy Temple local man from Thiruvananthapuram
    Padmanabha temple wealth not 770B$
    It's wrong information
    They opened main voult name A
    They find 50B$ marketing value..
    But if we compare traditional values 20 times or more bigger values
    Means 50*20=1000B$ actual Value
    And next we come to Vault B
    It's secret voult of the wold
    But some old historical documents says it's already opened 400years back that time they valued 2B$ market value
    That means present value morethan 2000B$
    And actual value with traditional historical calculations 2000*20=40000B$
    So total A+B Vault equal
    41000B$
    This is actual value…. Morethan budget of all developed countries
    So please don't do wrong information
    Not 770B$
    Actually 41000B$

  20. this Idea is 1441 years ago warn the believer about these. The Qur-an relate this To prophet Mohammed. They use religion to achieve wealth.

  21. WOW!!! Stay God Conscious… Lord Krishna said, "Fearlessness; purification of one’s existence; cultivation of spiritual knowledge; charity; self-control; performance of sacrifice; study of the Vedas (religious books); austerity; simplicity; nonviolence; truthfulness; freedom from anger; renunciation; tranquillity; aversion to faultfinding; compassion for all living entities; freedom from covetousness; gentleness; modesty; steady determination; vigor; forgiveness; fortitude; cleanliness; and freedom from envy and from the passion for honor – these transcendental qualities, belong to godly men and women endowed with divine nature. " Bg 16.1-3

  22. I don't know what your videos does. Is you providing organisations wealthy. Or there properties. If you are talking about property Roman catholic Church is in no.1 place because they has huge money gold, lands and lot of structures through world wide. First do enquiry and provide some correct stuff

  23. Of felt like some of these estimates are misleading. For instance, CofE and the Catholic Church aren’t one united institution, that is to say, all property in the world under its affiliation is its property. The two I mentioned, are split into dioceses and archdiocese, which are independent, self administrating sectors of the church. So for instance, the Lincoln cathedral is not owned by the Archbishop of Canterbury, but the diocese of Lincoln. St Patrick’s cathedral in New York is not owned by the Vatican or the pope but by the archdiocese of New York. So it’s not like every church that is catholic or Anglican sits in a value mark in the pope’s portfolio.

  24. All that money going to greedy religions and you think it's there to save the souls. No. It's going to arsholes who just love themselves and keep the country poor.

  25. Well, for an American you know swee FA about the history of The Church of England. The only thing you got right was Henry and his little girl. It certainly didn't remain catholic.

  26. British King Henry V111 married 6 wives and transformed Catholic British country into Anglican Church by genociding Catholics of Britain That's why British London transformed into Muslims country in 4 G generation

  27. Catholic are richest among all religion because they are millions of millions churches parish all over the world and Catholics have billions of hospitals collages universities hostels Boardings Hostels Schools Orphanage hostels schools hospitals Mesuems etc

  28. Catholic church is established by Juses Christ Lord Juses built His Church on Rock Peter not church of Juses Christ Catholic is built by Lord Juses Christ Messiah

  29. Indian looting their own country and blaming British and mughals this is why modi is a pm of india bcoz 90% indians are fools

  30. India had thousands of such temples before Islamic and British invasion in india… Bloody plunderers taken our wealth and destroyed our temples…

  31. Religion is a machine to transfer money from the brain deads to the greedy priests.Thats why PRIESTS HATE ATHEISTS.But one day will come when whole world will be converted to atheism and priests will disappear
