Pounding the philosophies, practices and faith of mammon, as I have in recent posts, can fall into two traps. First, pointing out the dangers of the worship of mammon is directed to Christians. If one chooses to follow mammon like Ayn Rand and her followers, they should be free to do so. We Christians can point to the final road in which a life dedicated to mammon warps the soul. All I am echoing is Jesus’ words. You can serve God or money, but not both.
Second, my pounding on mammon could be interpreted as a political statement. Below are two powerful videos echoing my pounding of mammon by John Piper the late Chuck Colson. Christians should be careful about the love of money and the Gospel of Prosperity. This is not about who Christians should vote for, but a call to serve God and not mammon.
