In the picture is an altar that is used by my niece for her business. People believe that if they make an offering to the altar then they will be blessed with luck and their finances will increase. My niece have many clients who are mostly well off with finances so maybe they give my niece a good business.
When it comes to religion there are many believers regardless of the tenets. That is why there are the so called cults with impossible claims. But what is surprising is that they have many followers. And so is my niece.
Do you go to church regularly?
