I don't recognize any of those buildings. The third one looks like a mosque.
Very good! You get a cookie!
There are surviving mosques with human images?

What mosque is this?

It is a Dilwara Jain Temple of Mount Abu dedicated to Mahaveer Swami.

That is Oral Robert's Prayer Tower.

Lots of naming and claiming going on in there.

You said 'especially money' and posted pictures as if more money was poured into those instead of time and talent. I'm gonna stay on the limb and say they're probably about equal parts. Money (or assumed expense) is just the most visibly obvious to most.

EDIT: maybe I'm lost. what does this have to do with the conversation. I'm looking back from Del's comment, to your comment, to Del's comment, yours, then mine...and I've lost where you're going. Evangelism? Buildings as art? Buildings as waste? Slave labor?
Del made the point that Christians have been converting long before capitalism. This is true but not really the point nor really honest. Christians have been buying and selling religious ephemera for a long, long time and religion has been an industry wwwwaaaaayyyyyy before capitalism (or Christianity, for that matter). I pointed out that religions sure seem to always need money. Now that can be in the form of money or slave labor or whatever but always seems to effect your salvation. Heck, for a time, indulgences were sold so it even took the more direct route and Prosperity Gospel preachers equate money with God's grace still today.

So Del's statement, while factual, was misleading to the overall conversation. Now I hate the idea of people selling religion, whether it is beard balm or indulgences or prayer cloths from the prayer tower. Doesn't matter. So I mock it because it deserves to be mocked. Doesn't mean the fellow that advertises on this site or the fellow that owns the site are evil or going to hell. They do deserve to be mocked, though.
Oh. Ok. Yeah, you were slogging through the river while I was hopping on the stepping stones. I see your point now.

Though I did throw a stone at indulgences around the bottom of page 3...I think it got lost in the shuffle.

Lots of guys wear beards and buy grooming products.

The Catholic Gentleman tries to bring a spiritual awareness to everything he does, because that is how a saint lives. Even in matters such as his beard and his purchases.

As far as indulgences go.... If you don't get it, don't knock it.

I keep a picture of St. Peter's Basilica as the wallpaper on my computer. I am glad to live in a world where such a testament lives in stone. I am grateful to the many sinners from centuries ago who donated to this work with the holy intention of atoning for their sins. Sometimes I even pray for the purification of their souls, so they can enjoy the Beautific Vision that this cathedral inspires us to anticipate. That is the prayer intention that inspired them to participate in its building.

Are you sure it's not a relic from the New York World's Fair?
