"Nazareth, where he had been brought up" - Money degrades all the gods of man

The Tokyo Station

Money degrades all the gods of man

Karl Marx wrote:
Money is the jealous god of Israel, in face of which no other god may exist. Money degrades all the gods of man – and turns them into commodities. Money is the universal self-established value of all things. It has, therefore, robbed the whole world – both the world of men and nature – of its specific value. Money is the estranged essence of man’s work and man’s existence, and this alien essence dominates him, and he worships it.
In this paragraph, Israel can be read as Europeans.  Then you can understand what Marx wanted to say or what he realized.

Indeed, an excellent anarchist wrote on Marx, alleging that Marx was not a friend of poor men but a friend of super-rich men.
Bakunin on Marx and Rothschild

“Himself a Jew, Marx has around him, in London and France, but especially in Germany, a multitude of more or less clever, intriguing, mobile, speculating Jews, such as Jews are every where: commercial or banking agents, writers, politicians, correspondents for newspapers of all shades, with one foot in the bank, the other in the socialist movement, and with their behinds sitting on the German daily press — they have taken possession of all the newspapers — and you can imagine what kind of sickening literature they produce. Now, this entire Jewish world, which forms a single profiteering sect, a people of bloodsuckers, a single gluttonnous parasite, closely and intimately united not only across national borders but across all differences of political opinion — this Jewish world today stands for the most part at the disposal of Marx and at the same time at the disposal of Rothschild. I am certain that Rothschild for his part greatly values the merits of Marx, and that Marx for his part feels instinctive attraction and great respect for Rothschild. 
This may seem strange. What can there be in common between Communism and the large banks? Oh! The Communism of Marx seeks enormous centralization in the state, and where such exists, there must inevitably be a central state bank, and where such a bank exists, the parasitic Jewish nation, which. speculates on the work of the people, will always find a way to prevail ....”

No Judaists have been taught to hate money but love God.  Marx hated others' money but loved his money.

Marx probably wanted to make others poor but make himself rich.  He happened to be born as a Judaist, which was not so advantageous in European society.  Due to his religion, he could not be easily rich.  But there were many rich and super-rich Judaists, such as Rothschilds.  So, Marx did not give up his hope to become rich.  And all he could do is to write something.

Accordingly, Marx had to attack, abuse, and neglect other Judaists in his writing.  He must have written his books to appeal to rich Europeans who could understand and help him.  Marx demonstrated that he loved money and he wanted to be rich, while presenting his talent in economics with a wish that some super-rich men would come to think that they had better become a friend of Marx's who had such a talent and could be dangerous if let him alone.

Even in this case of Marx, or a case of a Judaist, if he doesn't love God, he must surely love money.  But Marx loved his money and maybe Rothschild's money (as Rothschild understood him) but not money of others, including Christians and Judaists.

So we may as well think: Money is the jealous god of Europeans, in face of which no other god may exist. 

Before power of money, such differences in religion as that between Christianity and Judaism have no value, according to Marx.
