24No 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.
What is Mammon?
Mammon in the New Testament of the Bible is commonly thought to mean money, material wealth, or any entity that promises wealth, and is associated with the greedy pursuit of gain. The Gospel of Matthew and the Gospel of Luke both quote messiah using the word in a phrase often rendered in English as "You cannot serve both God and mammon."
So if you believe what the scripture is saying, you will then have to accept you can not serve both Yah and money, idols, or self interests in pursuit of gain. The scripture says you will either hate one, and love the other. This means if you love money, or the pursuit of gain, you hate Yah. The bible even says the love of money is the root of all evil.
1 Timothy 6:10
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
The same can be said of those who do not choose to serve Yah, but think being "Christian" entitles them to be all together lawless, or free from obedience to Yah's laws, yet these same so-called "Christians" seem to hold to, and even love the traditions and laws of their lands. They seem to despise the laws of Yah as being brutal and a form of bondage, yet at the same time boast in the man-made laws of their forefathers. It is evident the bible is correct in declaring you will hold to one and despise the other.
I am again reminded of many of those who claimed to be "Christian", who about 3 years ago, made statements such as, "We don't need a godly man to lead us, we just need someone who will turn our economy around".
ECONOMY IS THE PURSUIT AND MANAGEMENT OF GAIN/MONEY
So many Christians who were willing to look passed the wickedness of Trump, in pursuit of gain, acted in hate toward Yah and confirmed this by saying they did not need a godly man to lead them. This reminds me of when the "Jews" having their own agenda, asked for the robber named Barabbas instead of messiah.
40Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.
In no way am I remotely suggesting the Democratic choice is for President even close to righteousness, or messiah. Many in the Democratic party are atheist, and immoral, so although I do not agree with Democrats on most of what they stand for, I can actually understand their mindset, having myself been a practicing sinner before coming to the faith.
But what I find disgusting is, Evangelical Christians who are supposed to be held to a higher standard, chose a Barabbas like character in Trump, because money meant more to them than Godliness.
