“No man can serve two masters:
for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will
hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and
mammon.” (Matthew 6:24)
Mammon does not mean money but
it is entrusted wealth. Systems that hold or control the
right of the people to make choices about their wealth and property
are forms of “mamon”. Such systems always fail under
corruption, avarice, or over-indulgence.
are seeing the long term ramifications of fractional reserve systems.
They are not new in history and are often devastating. Inflation was
a terrible problem for the time of the early Church as silver was
removed from coins by the governments of Rome, and taxes were raised
for those subject to them to support its corruption.
“And I say unto you, Make to
yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye
fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.” (Luke
Mankind has repeatedly been
snared by its own wantonness and appetite, its own greed and lust for
power. Man’s sinful nature will always bring him back to the
bondage of Egypt. He must repent and change his ways in order to be
free, even though he may have to suffer for a season under the burden
of his captivity while he learns again the ways of Christ and His
Father in Heaven.
In the process of being freed
from bondage, we may have to continue to pay the Pharaohs, Herods,
and Caesars of the world, but we should not eat of the things
sacrificed to these gods of force and fear. They serve deceitful
meats and their table is a snare.
Christ’s Kingdom began
with those who changed their ways and sought His righteousness. The
Kingdom was only for the virtuous who loved their neighbor. It was
for those who truly believed in Christ’s sacrifice, His giving
and forgiving in spirit and in truth.
“Ye cannot drink the cup of the
Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s
table, and of the table of devils.” 1 Corinthians 10:21
