When Money becomes god

Don’t get me wrong, we all need money to survive. There are those who make money their gods. I mean the small letter god not the capital letter God.

One of the 10 commandments is “You shall have no other gods before me. I, the Lord is a jealous God.”

Here’s a verse that is happening today more and more lately. The verse is 2 Timothy 3:2, “People will be lovers of themselves and lovers of money.”

In Matthew 6:24, “No one can serve 2 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.”

Yet those in power and have lots of money are doing just that. They have become lovers of money and of themselves. They don’t care about the people they serve in Washington or anywhere.

Some say the root of all evil is money. It’s not money but the power that comes with it. Those who are rich also have the power of money that goes with it. They used that power to flaunt it over those who are not rich.

Those who are rich can get away with anything illegal. They can afford a good attorney to get them off with just a slap on the wrist.

They thumb their noses at anyone who doesn’t have what they have. To them, we are beneath them. We are not welcome in their circle.

Then again, who would want to be a part of their circle? With their snobbish attitude, who would want to be a part of it?

I mean, I would rather have friends in low places than someone who thinks they are so much better because they have so much money and power.

If anyone tries to interfere with their power they have over others; they fight back. They do not like anyone to take away their power.

The Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi lived in a gated house in California; while her contingent are the poor working class people. She doesn’t much care what her people thinks of her.

She is not alone in that way of thinking either. She got the money and power so why worried what others think about her. A lot of them thinks that way too.

It’s like the rich man who had died and sees that he went to hell while the people under him went to heaven. He beg for them to have mercy. The Lord told him that he got what’s coming to him. This isn’t completely accurate but I think you get the message.

The Established Republicans hated the Tea Party because they were shaking things up in Washington D.C. The career politicians hated Trump because he was draining the swamp.

Before Trump even ran for President, he was their best friend. He was part of their circle. Once he ran for President and became President, they feared him. They feared that he would interfere with their power that they have over the American people. They didn’t want to lose all that power that money can buy. They had gotten used to all the perks that comes with being in government. Trump was doing things they could never do or even thought of doing.

This make me think of the best movie I have seen, “The Help.” One of my favorite scene was where someone baked a pie and offered it to her rich boss who treated her like a slave. The pie turned out to be made with her shit. She even said, “Eat my shit!”

I’m sure a lot of people felt that way toward their rich employer.

Even though, that movie was based in the ’60’s and dealt with racism; it is more than racism. It was about the rich flaunting their wealth and power over anyone beneath them.

Another person who was a part of the rich and powerful in-crowd is/was Elon Musk. Since Elon Musk had used his money and power to buy Twitter to fight for our freedom of Speech and Expression; They are pissed at him. They hate him as much as they hate Trump. Because both of them are going against everything they believed and stand for.

It good to see Elon Musk fighting for our freedom and buying Twitter. The big question is: what’s in it for him? No one does something like that without a motive. They want something in return. They are flaunting their money and power, making themselves so much better than the rest of us. They are not lover of people but rather lover of money.

The more they have, the more they want! My step-dad hated people who brag about what they have and rub our noses in it.

The point I’m getting at is: don’t let money be your god! Don’t let money and the power that goes with it consume you to the point that you becomes lover of money rather than of people.

If you do that, God will take it away and give it to someone else. That’s why those in power were/are afraid of Trump and Elon Musk. Those who are rich are constantly living in fear because they are afraid of losing it all. They will fight tooth and nail to hold onto what they have including the power that goes with it. They have more fear than the poor working class; because they brought it all on themselves.

I mean do you want that kinds of life, living in constant fear all the time? I don’t!
