Hello, I grew up as a Catholic and then as a young man converted to LDS. Both of these churches have used there afterlife theology to promote their organizations importance. Catholics say that you must attend church, receive communion, go to confession, in order to prevent or not have any remove mortal sins. LDS tell their people you need to go to the temple, obey your bishop, pay tithing in order to get to the highest place in heaven. Right now I belong to the Association for Research and Enlightenment (started by Edgar Cayce) and as far as I can tell they don't use their afterlife beliefs to feather their nest and I was wondering about other groups who promote reincarnation.
