Christianity and Commerce

I used to think that Christianity had been suborned by commercial interests. Now I realize that Christianity is a vector for what is, essentially, an abstract version of predation. That is, christianity and commerce both seek to exploit their targets. Commerce does it in the name of monetary profit; christianity does it in the name of salvation.

Why is this not recognized as evil? Because they profess good intentions and ulterior direction? ‘Tis not my will, but thy will be done.’ The bottom line is still coercion. What happened to free will?
