The Conceit of Currency.......
"I am all you need!"
"You have nothing, without me!"
"Through me, you have your hearts' desires!"
"Everybody wants me!"
"Everyone needs me!"
"You can't live without me!"
"I run your churches!"
"All bow to me, my will, and my influence!"
"I can change hearts and minds in an instant!"
"You won't get far without me!"
A god can only rule over lives submitted to it. This particular false god, we've allowed to imbed itself so deeply into our world and society that we are blind and oblivious to how it's effect has corrupted all things. It's kinda like Type 1 Diabetes, a chronic illness. It's in you, always trying to run things and take over, but you've gotta work and fight all the days of your life to keep it at bay and under control.
A slave is only a slave when he/she chooses to be a slave. As Bob Marley admonished, "Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery. None but ourselves can free our minds."
Though many of today's churches, religions, and denominations would have you believe that you can, the fact remains, "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."
