E.g. City harvest Church: the Pastor and his henchmen stole/ siphoned $36 million from the church building fund to invest in a secret scheme to make half nude videos to entice unsuspecting people to join their Church 'congregation'.
This is definitely directly in contradiction to their own professed Christian Bible that says in James 1:27 that "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?s ... ersion=NIV
Thus, in so far that the church is stealing/misusing the people's donations, not to help orphans and widows but to secretly create very evil and obscene videos to market the church just as a casino/ brothels attract/ solicit visitors to utilize their patronize their outlets and spend $$$$$; or misusing church funds to fuel one's wife's ego of becoming a wealthy international pop superstar, then maybe the church is leading people astray and away from God instead.
In secular terms, the church is operating upon the structure of a PONZI scheme if not by a "den of thieves". https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cleansing_of_the_Temple
More people should critique those corrupted churches who stray from biblical teachings or that are actually a "den of thieves" instead.
