Wealth Problem: Idols of Silver, Gold, & Men

We worship the thing on which we become dependent.

You shall not make other gods besides Me; gods of silver or gods of gold, you shall not make for yourselves. — Exodus 20:23

“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” –Matthew 6:24

In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge... For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. — 2Timothy 4:1–4

Therefore I urge you, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. — Romans 12:1–2

“…if you have a readily available pool of cash (capital), opportunities with track you down.” — R. Nelson Nash (Building Your Wearhouse of Wealth pg. 22)

“…I came so that they would have life, and have it abundantly.” — John 10:10
