Mammon

Mammon

Wealth and success atone for all wickedness of word and action in a society that worships Mammon, the god of riches. 

But we do not believe the smiling and smug confidence of Mammon’s evangelists and priests. Mammon is not a god of freedom, justice, peace, or wholeness. Mammon is a deceitful, crushing, cannibalizing master. Mammon stands opposed to the gospel of a Savior who “for our sake became poor” and “emptied himself, making himself nothing.”

We cannot serve God and Mammon.
