Excuses, excuses…

Go against the mainstream…

“No man can serve two masters; you will hate one and love the other; you will be loyal to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money” (6:24).

When Jesus said you cannot work for God and money at the same time, the churchmen “derided him because of their covetousness (Lk 16:14).” Here are some arguments they give today:

Excuse No. 1:

You can work for money without worshipping it. But can you work for Satan without serving him? “Don’t you know that whoever you obey you are serving?” (Rom 6:16) If your faith is in God, you will work for God. If it is in money, you will work for money. “Show me your faith without your works and I’ll show you my faith by my works” (James 2:18). NOTE: You may receive money for something you do, without that being your first motive in what you are doing. Just ask yourself if you’d still do it, even if you weren’t paid for it, to determine what your first motive is.

Excuse No. 2: You can love money if you don’t love it more than God. Can you love Satan a little less than God? You must hate one master or the other. Though we all use money, we must learn to recognise its fatal addiction, and hate what it is doing to mankind spiritually. If we try to keep money a close second to God, it’s already a clear first.

Welcome to the intersection of economics & and love! We are Christians who are disgusted with the money system worship of the Churches. We call it "Churchianity" and nothing could be further from what Jesus Christ taught than what is commonly preached in most churches around the world. His profoundly revolutionary and unrivaled teachings about love, if practiced, open our eyes to the matrix of greed that he came to free us from.
