No one can serve both God and riches (“You cannot serve both God and money”)

From the King James Bible chapters 11, 12 and 13:

11 And if you are untrustworthy about worldly wealth, who will trust you with the true riches of heaven? 12 And if you are not faithful with other people’s things, why should you be trusted with things of your own?

13 “No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”

What does it say about Chistendom, do they put these things into practice?

From the Oahspe:

Page 294 verse 17:

A mortal man striveth for riches, honorably, and when he is rich his riches, cut him off from Me by the ruin he casteth upon his competitors, nor can he extricate himself.

This plainly says he cannot extricate himself with serving two masters. What are those two masters? God and money. The faithists of old held all things in common; Esseans (a true sect) according to historians and the Oahspe pretty much say that same:

And thy people shall hold all things in common, being neither rich, nor poor:

also read page 780 verse 15.

What then shall we say about the Essenes who are erroneously cited of producing the Dead Sea Scrolls; or should we look at the writings of the historian Josephus who had said the Esseans lived in a society where there were neither rich nor poor and held all things in common?

  1. What can we say about man these days, in regard to riches, do they put God first or wealth and prosperity? Rss
