I wouldn't say that there is no concrete product or service. There are bibles and plenty of books related to God. The intangible product is the feeling of comfort people get by believing in God. That is priceless.
Priceless? If I could supply the same feeling of comfort from a pill, would you pay anything for it? Would it be priceless? Jesus said it was impossible to get into heaven for the rich. I guess the Pope and all those tele-vangulists haven't figured that one our yet.

Is a five pound robin fat? They carry God's money in a leaky bucket, too.
What did Peter and John say when the lame beggar asked them for a handout? That's right, even though they had people dumping tons of money at their feet, they replied, "Money we have none. Stand up and walk."
guys i understand in terms of subscribed customers christianity is biggest but just dont focus on one firm...there are others in the business too and Islam is competing well and would end up having highest subscribed customers in near future..
