Hate Money but Love God
Why does money have such value as would be admitted by everybody?
No matter what you are, if you have $10 and go to a hamburger shop, you can get enough foods in exchange of $10 in any countries, even with a change back.
Money is so convenient, since only money counts when you get foods and any other goods and services. Basically, nothing else matters if you have money. You can be a criminal or a very stupid or harmful man or you can be a black in a white-dominant town. You can buy anything by money which is priced. You can get hamburgers or any foods if you have enough money; you personality doesn't count. Money is so convenient, democratic, and efficient.
The power of money is so overwhelming that no countries in the world have to specify in their constitutions that people must admit power of money. Indeed, every country collects tax in the form of money. And any enterprises in this world pay money to their employees in exchange of their labor. Goods and services are provided by enterprises in exchange of money.
Conversely, finally the mankind has built a world where without money they cannot even get foods and other goods and services. Put extremely, everything in this world is priced, meaning everything can be sold and bought by money.
If there is no money in this world, people might eventually fight physically one another to get goods and services. Or even people might start to kill one another to get goods and services from others. But in the economic system based on money, people only have to work peacefully hard to earn money with which they can purchase goods and services.
So, what is bad about money? Money is not distributed equally in the society. Some people have big money while others have only little. So, rich men provide money for poor men in exchange of their services or labor. Rich men control poor men through money.
Poor men need money to buy foods. But money is only given to them not by God but by rich men in exchange of their services. If a rich man dislikes a specific poor man, the rich man will not hire the poor man and give him money. Then the poor man will starve to death. So, every poor man would try to be liked by rich men who can hire them and give them money.
Rich men with money can control and rule poor men.
Capitalists in the capitalist society and leaders in the communist society have both big money to control and rule poor men. They can almost order poor men to do anything, for example, kill their enemies. Or rich men can order poor men even to hate God if they want money from them.
Money had a function to make economic transactions smooth. But money has a more significant function to allow rich men to control poor men. And through the latter function, Satan controls and rules men to order them to do any evil and ungodly deeds.
If Satan is a rich man and an angel is a poor man, Satan can even make the angel do any evil and ungodly deeds, in this context. And this is what Satan wants. This is why Satan helped the mankind invent and introduce money.
Money is in the hand of evil men who admire Satan since Satan helped the mankind invent and introduce money.
That is why Christ Jesus said to hate money but love God.
