The idea that someone can acclaim God and then turn around and exclaim money is quite laughable.
Only because there is a dissonance there that doesn’t make much sense. Either their concept of God is warped or their relationship with God is warped (devaluing of self). The idea of God is actually the exact opposite of the construct of money. God represents the omnipotent, omniscient and the ubiquitous—the infinite if you will. Money, on the other hand, is quite narrow, it is constrictive, it is a means to an end, it separates, and encourages individualism. Money is about control and not much more. On the other hand the very idea of God is freedom.–The ability to do all things regardless of the situation and despite any circumstances. —The ability or concept of the supernatural—the transcendence of logic and bounds. God is the ability to manipulate nature, human emotion, and human awe—if one is defining “God” on the most basic of levels. Yet God transcends even these trivial acts in relation to that which is infinite.
Now if you want to delve deeper than that, the architect of the universe has nothing to do with money. Money is a construct of man—a construct of a construct of a construct. A construct that is very limited and quite restrictive. That from which all things have sprung forth life from would have the very least to do with money. That which compelled the universe into existence would have nothing to do with money a billion years ago, a million years ago, today, or anytime in the near/distant future. That which stands outside of time wouldn’t even acknowledge a brain that was bound to such logic. Neither would any “God” that is worth its weight for that matter. For any God with any semblance of power can actualize something out of nothing– no middle intermediary necessary.
Thus the fact that one would praise money on the one hand and then praise God on the other hand gives me insight into what really has a grip on their mind. It isn’t the money that is God but the idea behind the money.–The power and greed behind the money that is God.–The idea that you can control your reality through a piece of paper—very telling. The idea that you would reduce your existence to being controlled by a piece of paper is also very telling. The idea that you would willingly give your life’s motivation to the will of a piece of paper is a true tragedy.
The spirit that is energized by such a tragedy would reveal who is truly their God. –Money becoming ruler of man. A construct becomes master, bending god to its will.
